Black Bean and Mango Salsa

I first heard of this recipe when my husband brought it home from a work party a couple of years ago. He didn't bring home the salsa....just the recipe. And he went on and on about how wonderful it was, so I thought I would give it a try. And it really is very wonderful. We like to either eat it with chips as a snack or grilled chicken and rice as a meal. So, in honor of Cinco de Mayo, I thought I would share this yummy spring salsa.



Black Bean and Mango Salsa
Recipe from Kraft Foods


1 envelope Good Seasons Italian dressing mix
1 can black beans (not drained)
1 10 oz package frozen corn, thawed (we like to use sweet corn)
1 cup chopped ripe mango (to learn how to chop the mango, go here)
1/2 cup chopped red pepper
1/3 cup chopped red onion
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 cup lime juice

Mix all of the ingredients together until well combined.  Cover and refrigerate at least one hour (or best overnight). Serve with grilled chicken, chips or rice.


  1. Yum! I'm pinning this right now! I stopped by to tell you how excited I am that you are joining in the blog swap!

  2. This looks very delicious. Very good photo of the home made salsa.

  3. That sounds yummy. I like black beans, but I'm not a huge fan of mangos. I wonder if it would work with peaches?

  4. We make a similar version of this with avocados. Love it! Try a little cumin in it next time you make it. :-)
