Recipe of the Day: Black Bean & Mango Salad

I made this last night for dinner. Not only was it delicious, nutritious and filling, but, I performed really well in my workout today! Who knew?! For the most part I eat 90% vegetarian. I eat fish and eggs a few times a week. This salad, though, the protein and the carbohydrates in the black beans – what an amazing combo. Please let us know if you have any recipe requests! We are happy to oblige!

INGREDIENTS
1 BPA-free can of black beans, rinsed and drained*
1 mango, diced
1 tbsp. jalapeño, finely diced (about . medium jalapeño)
1 small red onion, finely diced
1 avocado, diced
3 tbsp. cilantro leaves, finely chopped
1 small orange bell, pepper, finely chopped
1/4 tsp. high-quality sea salt
Optional: organic, corn

DRESSING
Juice of 1 large lime
1 tbsp.  olive oil
1 shallot finely minced
1 tsp. rice vinegar*
Pinch of high-quality sea salt
Fresh cracked pepper to taste

*Whisk all dressing ingredients together and pour over chopped ingredients. I recommend refrigerating the salad for about 30 minutes to an hour before serving to allow the flavors to meld.

Enjoy!
