Black Bean, Avocado, and Mango Salad with Cilantro and Lime

Jump to Recipe

 

I am really sick of winter. It has been cold and dreary for too long. I know it is only January and I live in Utah, so I have a few months to go:(  To help lift my spirits, I made this Black Bean, Avocado, and Mango Salad with Cilantro and Lime.

This salad reminds me of summer. I love all of the bright colors and fresh ingredients. I also like how easy it is to make. I used canned black beans, chopped up a tomato and cilantro, diced a mango, avocado, red onion, and sliced a lime. I put all of the toppings on a bed of romaine lettuce. The salad really doesn’t need a dressing-the juicy mango, creamy avocado chunks, and cilantro add plenty of flavor. I just squeezed fresh lime juice over the top for my dressing. If you are a dressing lover and need a little something extra, try Josh’s mango salsa. The salsa goes great with this salad and makes a very healthy dressing.

If you are experiencing the winter blues lime me, try this salad. It will take you to a special summer paradise-at least for one meal.

  1. I know what you mean about our horrible weather this year. We are buried here but I knew it was coming when I had to turn the heater on in our barn utility room in September! Way too early to turn on the heater!

    We are buried in snow and I longing for Spring!

  2. What a beautiful salad. I love all the flavors. I’ll have to try this one! I made your green beans and loved them. That lemon really dressed them up. Thanks for all these great healthy recipes!

  3. I made this for dinner tonight, substituting the lettuce with fresh baby spinach. I topped with grilled chicken I had marinated in mango chipotle marinade. Hubby said it was delicious!!! This is a definite keeper!
