Mango and Black Bean Salsa

This has long been one of my favorite compliments to grilled fish.  It’s easy to pull together, adds nice color to your plate, and has a great fresh flavor.  It would also be an excellent addition to a pork loin or chop.  You might think it an odd combination but it works!


1 mango diced

1/2 cup or red onion diced

1 can of black beans rinsed and drained

1/2 cup of fresh cilantro

3 T olive oil

3 T fresh squeezed lime juice

salt to taste

Peel and dice the mango.  That’s probably the most challenging part of making this dish.  Add the mango to a medium size serving dish.

Rinse and drain the can of black beans and add to the mango.

Add the diced red onion.

Add the cilantro.  More than 1/2 cup if you love cilantro.

Juice a fresh lime.

Add the lime juice and olive oil and stir to combine.  Season with salt to taste.  Enjoy over a piece of grilled fish.

NOTE:  Like I mentioned, this would be a great compliment to a pork chop or pork loin.  I ate the left over salsa with cottage cheese.  You may have seen mango salsa in the grocery.   Of course homemade is always best and freshest.  But you might also like it with some tortilla chips, perhaps with a little minced jalapeño to kick it up a bit.
