Mango Salad

Mango Salad

1 1/2 cups diced fresh mango
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed, drained
1 1/4 cups frozen or fresh corn kernels
1/2 cup diced red pepper
1/3 cup diced red onion
1/3 cup chopped parsley or cilantro


1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon cumin
1 (0.07 ounce) packet Italian dressing mix

In large bowl,combine diced mango, black beans, corn, red pepper, red onion and parsley or cilantro.

In small bowl, combine balsamic vinegar, olive oil, water, lime juice, cumin, and Italian dressing mix. Mix well

 Add dressing mixture to bowl with chopped mango and other ingredients.  Mix well.

 Chill at least one hour before serving.

This is one of my husband Stan's favorite salads.  He loves the combination of sweet mangoes with the tang of the balsamic vinegar, and the texture of the black beans.  He always goes back for seconds.

We like have the Mango Salad alone, as a side salad with a sandwich, or even spooned over chicken.

  1. I love mangoes but never see them in the shops around here :-( Diane

  2. I do love Mango salad and your recipe is very similar to mine; good stuff.

  3. It looks great, Linda! I've never had mango salad so I will be trying this. I'm a believer since you and Stan like it!!!

  4. I'm still gun shy of mangos. I just had two about 10 days ago and they were "off". It messed up a bbq sauce and a salad.

    When I get over it, I will give this a try because I really like the mix of flavors.

  5. Love managos in anything. Your mango salad looks great:)

  6. Linda This looks so refreshing....

  10. Linda this salad is perfect for summer time! Thanks for sharing!
