Black Bean, Mango, and Avocado Salad

This relish-like salad is delicious and festive, and goes well with southwestern-style tortilla or corn dishes

Nava Atlas

  • This mango and black bean salad is easy to make, festive to look at, and delicious to eat! Enjoy as part of a backyard barbecue or picnic lunch. The HSUS

  • How to dice a fresh mango: Cut the mango as if to cut in half lengthwise, avoiding the large stone in the center of the fruit. The HSUS

  • Cut the mango crosswise and lengthwise. Turn the mango wedge into a convex shape so that the mango pieces separate. Cut pieces away from the skin. The HSUS
