Mango Black Bean Salad
I love me this salad!!! This is the kind of everyday eating that makes me happy. Do you know what I mean? This salad makes the perfect lunch, dinner side or it can even be used as a dip for chips. How’s that for versatile?

This is super, super easy to put together. Just make sure you rinse the beans well to get off all the extra starch.  It also helps to make the look of the finished dip not murky.  Use nice ripe mangos.  I often like to use Honey mangos because they’re so readily available and wonderfully sweet.

Mexican Corn Salad – The perfect mix of tangy , sweet, and savory tastes in a side dish!

Cucumber Tomato Salad – A crisp, colorful, refreshing side with salty bits of mozzarella and a rich, tangy balsamic vinaigrette!

Grape Salad -Wonderful and unique salad, topped with roasted pecans and brown sugar!
