Black Bean Mango Salsa.SofiasIdeas

BLACK BEAN MANGO SALAD (via my Juice Plus+ buddy, Barbara)

1 can (16 oz.) black beans, drained and rinsed
2 cups mango, diced
1 cup of sweet red bell pepper, diced
6 green onions, thinly sliced
¼ cups cilantro leaves, chopped
¼ cups fresh lime juice
1 TBL olive oil
1 seed Jalapeno pepper minced (optional)
Salt to taste

Well, that’s the plan anyway. Stay tuned and see how it all turns out! I love this feeling of accomplishment… my menus are planned, my grocery lists are made, and my coupons are clipped. Meal planning around our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share definitely fits into Sofia’s Ideas on Simplicity, Frugality, and Frivolity…. all with an Eco-Mentality!
