Mango and Black Bean Salsa

This sweet salsa will be the perfect accompaniment to any Cinco De Mayo table:-)

I took a bit of a bloggy break over the last couple weeks. But I am back and doing my menu planning with I'm an Organizing Junkie. So, here is my menu this week:

Also, $5 Dinners inspires us all to make low cost dinners. In that spirit, I am taking what Pick N Save has on sale, pairing it with coupons and coming up with the tastiest money saving around! Black beans were on sale for $1.00 (normally $1.29.) at Pick N Save. I grabbed a bunch to make my featured recipe today:

Mango and Black Bean Salsa
1 lime, zested and juiced
1 tbs honey
1 clove garlic
1 tbs olive Oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 mango peeled and cut into 1/4-inch cubes
1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
1 onion, diced
1 sweet red pepper, diced
1 tbs parsley, chopped

1. In a medium bowl, mix lime zest and juice, garlic and honey. Wisk in olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste.

2. Toss mango, black beans, onion and red pepper with the sauce. Top with parsley.

3. Serve with your favorite mexican dish or with chips.

How do you think this would be if I omitted the onion? Or could I just cut it way down? I'm not a fan of raw onions because they tend to overpower flavors for me, but the rest of this sounds FANTASTIC!

I was wondering where you've been! Hope you enjoyed your break. I love this salsa. I really love those yellow mangoes, I think they call them Champagne mangoes...they are so sweet and delicious! I'll have to try this soon!
