I don’t know if it my eagerness for spring or just the need for change, but I am craving lighter foods. Don’t get me wrong, I love the comfort foods of winter, but I am ready for the fresh taste of produce that does not include root vegetables. At the store the other day I walked past these beautiful mangos. Their cheerful yellow color caught my eye and I quickly added them to my cart.
Yesterday, as I was contemplating what to make for lunch, my eyes landed on those beautiful mangoes and I immediately thought…salsa!
It had exactly the light, fresh flavor I’d been craving. This mango salsa from ‘in the little red house’ is more of a method than a recipe. Tailor it to your own taste, adding more or less of any one of the ingredients.
Mango and Black Bean Salsa
1 mango, diced
1 can of black beans, rinsed and drained
1 handful of red bell pepper, diced
1 handful of red onion, diced
1 handful of cilantro, chopped
Juice of one lime
salt & pepper to taste
I had mine with a few blue tortilla chips and avocado on the side, but really could have just eaten it straight out of the bowl with a spoon. So delicious. Maybe while your munching away on your chips and salsa go check out ‘in the little red house’. It is a charming blog with great recipes, beautiful pictures and writing. I’m so glad to have stumbled upon it.
