Black Bean Mango Salsa {Potluck Sunday}

Good morning everyone. I am up bright and early this morning because today we are visiting our local peach orchard. The kids and I are really excited.

Hopefully I will have my pick of some goodies today. I plan on buying some peaches, cream peas, peach pecan bread and some moonshine syrup for my pecan pies. I ran out over winter and I can't wait to get my hands on it again.

Fingers crossed Hams will have some left today. But, before I head out I wanted to get my Potluck Sunday dish posted.

Today's dish is a quick and tasty Black Bean Mango Salsa. I prepared this salsa the other night when we had grilled chicken for dinner.

I had 3 lonely mango's left that I had bought on sale last week for .25 each. That was such a steal of a deal.

I remembered this salsa recipe when I was trying to think of something different to make to use up the last of the mango's.

 Black beans, corn, mango's, red onion, cilantro, and lime juice make up this colorful yet easy salsa recipe. This salsa takes only minutes to throw together and pairs perfectly with any grilled meat or fish.

If you're looking for a quick appetizer this salsa is also great served all by itself with tortilla or pita chips for dipping. Make sure to use sweet ripe mango's and fresh lime juice for best results.

The hardest part of the whole recipe was letting the salsa chill for at least an hour before serving. As for me, I couldn't wait and dove right in with some pita chips. Delicious, this recipe is so sweet and refreshing.
Today I am bringing this yummy Black Bean Mango Salsa to our Virtual Potluck. Now it's your turn, do you have a recipe you would like to bring to our potluck? If so then you can link up at the end of this post.

Please link directly to your post, not your homepage and don't forget to include a link back to Mommy's Kitchen. I would like to thank everyone who participates in Potluck Sunday every week. I hope y'all will take some time and stop by all of the wonderful blogs who have contributed a recipe.

This recipe is easy peasy to make. Start by dicing up those pretty mango's. This can be a bit tricky so I have included a helpful video on how to cut a mango. This can be done two different ways so pick which is the easiest for you.

Once you have cut and diced the mango add to a medium size bowl. Next add the black beans, corn, cilantro, lime juice, salt, and pepper.

Lightly toss the ingredients together and chill at least 1 hour before serving. Well that's if you can wait that long.

With all the bright colors this salsa is the perfect summer side dish. Enjoy!!!!!

Oh goodness all the recipe contributions already look quite tasty. April it will be a bit for the tastiest peaches, but I will settle for what they have right now. The freestone peaches are the best but it will be mid June for those.

Leslie it was a crazy sale. I saw a man loading up on Mangos, so I had to go over and check it out. .25 each a steal of a deal. They are never that low in price.

Two Maids a Milking: Thank you for featuring my Mandarin Orange Cake! It is so light and yummy.
