This was great!! My dinner guest oo'd and aah'd they loved it, my family did too. I served it over broiled chicken some just ate it as a mango salad. I prepped early in the day so plenty of time to marinade. I think next time I'll add extra lime and cilantro, to taste-13 Apr 2010

I too add onion and petite diced tomatoes - a little crazy salt doesn't hurt either. This recipe is out of this WORLD and uniquely different. Great with Tostitos Scoops!-15 Mar 2011

Black Bean-Mango Salsa

Black beans, mango, and corn make up the main part of this colorful salsa. Cilantro, red onion, mint, lime juice, and honey add irresistible flavor. Packed with protein, vitamins, minerals, and fiber, this salsa is a beautiful, healthy, and tasty addition to any table. Top a salad with it to add nutrition and flavor, or spoon it onto tortilla chips, or as in my photos, try it with crispy polenta discs. Or just take a spoon and eat it straight! Either way, it is delicious!

If left to my own devices, I would probably eat way too much bread and cheese. So it’s really nice when I can find a super-healthy, clean eating recipe that I love, a dish that can energize my body and help me work hard and stand strong. The balance of flavors in this salsa is wonderful. A bit of sweetness from the mangoes and honey is mixed with a bit of zing from the lime juice and cilantro. It is a great snack, salad topper, or side dish.

I adapted this recipe from my husband’s beloved “Thrive Energy Cookbook” by Brendan Brazier. I was drawn to it because my grocery store has had mangoes on sale for the past couple of weeks, so we have had mangoes in our fruit bowl waiting to be used. Now that I have found this salsa, I expect it will become a regular in our rotation, because it is so delicious, easy, and versatile. I used thawed frozen corn instead of fresh, and substituted honey and olive oil instead of the agave nectar and hemp oil called for in the Thrive recipe.

The days and evenings of this month have been very full. I have not posted as often as I would like to. It’s not that I haven’t been in the kitchen–quite the contrary! I just haven’t gotten the photos or the recipes organized. But that is about to change. I am about to get back on track. Recently, I started playing the piano again, after almost three years away from it. Since my dad died, I have been unable to touch the piano. I think it has something to do with the emotions released when playing the piano.

In any case, although I am very rusty, it feels good to have that part of my life back again, and I know my dad would be glad about it too. I stumbled across a really pretty song that I am now working on, called The Dance, written by Tony Arata. Apparently, Garth Brooks also is known for singing it. I am not usually a country music aficionado, but this song really caught me. The melody is so beautiful, and the words….they are a good reminder. We don’t always know how things are gong to turn out. Sometimes it’s better that way, otherwise we may not take risks or go for our dreams. If we try to avoid heartbreak, disappointment, or failure, we might miss out on the things that make life worth living. “Our lives are better left to chance….I could have missed the pain…but I’d have had to miss the dance.” It’s not like we haven’t heard this message or something similar to it before, but when it is put to music in a beautiful song, sometimes it’s like hearing the message for the first time again.

I hope you all have a great weekend, and enjoy the beautiful fall colors if you live in an area like mine, where the leaves are just starting to turn beautiful shades of red and gold. And if you try this salsa, I hope you enjoy it as much as we do here! I’m sharing this recipe at Angie’s Fiesta Friday, co-hosted this week by Julianna @ Foodie on Board and Zeba @ Food For The Soul.

Black Bean-Mango Salsa

  • 1 cup of cooked or rinsed canned black beans
  • 1 cup of mango, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup of sweet corn kernels, fresh or thawed from frozen
  • 1/4 cup of red onion, finely diced
  • a handful of fresh cilantro leaves, torn and stems removed
  • 3 or 4 fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh squeezed lime juice (about 1 lime)
  • 1 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of honey
  • salt and pepper to taste

Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl. Stir gently and thoroughly. Best served immediately, but can also be kept tightly sealed in the refrigerator for up to a week. Use on top of salads, with tortilla chips or polenta discs, or however you like. Enjoy!

This recipe is adapted from the Thrive Energy Cookbook by Brendan Brazier.


  • 1 (15 ounce) can no-salt-added black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 medium papaya, halved, seeded, peeled, and chopped (1 1/4 cups)
  • 1 medium mango, halved, peeled, pitted, and chopped (1 cup)
  • 1 medium orange, sectioned and chopped (see Tip)
  • ⅓ cup chopped red onion
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice (see Tip)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh cilantro or parsley
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 pinch 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 8 ounces scoop shaped baked tortilla chips
  • 1 bunch Cilantro or parsley leaves

In a large bowl combine beans, papaya, mango, orange, and red onion. In a small bowl whisk together orange juice, olive oil, snipped cilantro, lime juice, salt, black pepper, and, if desired, cayenne pepper. Spoon orange juice mixture over bean mixture toss to combine. Serve immediately or cover and chill for up to 24 hours.

To serve, spoon salsa into baked scoop chips. If desired, garnish cups with fresh cilantro or parsley leaves.

Tip: Section and chop the orange over a shallow dish you should be able to reserve the juice for the 2 tablespoons needed in the recipe.

Directions

Preheat the oven to 200 F.

Combine the salsa, cumin, and black beans in a food processor and pulse until smooth. Add 1 cup bread crumbs, 1/4 cup scallions, salt, and black pepper.

Divide the mixture into small patties, roughly 1/8 cup each. Dredge the patties in the remaining 1/2 cup bread crumbs. Set the patties on a tray and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

While the bean cakes chill, combine the mangoes, onion, red bell pepper, 2 tablespoons scallions, cilantro, lime juice, sugar or agave nectar, and cayenne pepper and refrigerate until serving time.

Heat a nonstick large skillet over medium heat. Using cooking spray throughout the sauté process, sauté the cakes for about 3 minutes per side, watching carefully so the cakes don't burn.

Place the cakes on a baking sheet and place in the 200 F oven until all cakes are prepared. Serve the cakes with the salsa.

Beans, beans, the magical fruit the more you eat, the more you…. How funny, we all know how that old song goes. But, did you know that you actually make your intestinal bacteria happy with all the fiber from beans?

Bacteria that live in our intestinal tract, also known as gut bugs, flourish off colorful, plant-based foods. This black bean mango salsa not only tastes good but it’s good for you too!

To learn more about the importance of gut health, check out this article: “What The Bacteria In Your Gut Have To Do With Your Physical And Mental Health.”

These little bugs can even affect your mental health. OK, but I love, love, love mango salsa. Problem is, that I can eat the whole container in one sitting and that is just too much fruit at one time.

Black Beans are so versatile! Try these recipes to see how much so:

So, enter, the BLACK BEAN! The beans fill you up and the mango satisfies your sweet tooth. It’s a tangy, sweet, crunchy, spicy delight! Dip into with homemade, oil-free crispy tortilla chips and it’s pretty much guilt-free.

Did you know most people consider the “black bean” to be one of the world’s healthiest foods?
