This black bean mango salad is bursting with colors, flavors and freshness and can be used as a salsa with chips or served on grilled chicken, fish or meat!
I call this black bean and mango salad the party salad.
It’s beautiful, dressed and always ready for a good time, whatever the occasion.
It brings color, flavor and fun. Party, party! 🎉
The recipe comes from my mom and we’ve both been making this salad for years now because it’s always a hit.
Plus, it’s loaded with veggies, which you know I love! We’ve got black beans and mango, of course, but also tomatoes and corn, cucumber and red onion.
And it’s all topped with a simple red wine vinaigrette that brings it all together.
This little salad is also really versatile!
Ways to serve black bean mango salad:

– Add a scoop of this salad to a wrap with some turkey/chicken/steak
So many ways to enjoy it!
I also love that it’s a make-ahead dish, so it’s perfect for bringing to a potluck.
And since it’s vegan/vegetarian, gluten-free, low-carb and dairy-free, it’s a good one for a crowd.
