Mango-Black Bean Salsa

 Mango makes everything refreshing and sweet. This is a take from my Pineapple-Black Bean Salad. This refreshing salsa can be served on tacos, with tortilla chips, or piled into a pita for a delicious sandwich.

Makes 4 servings

1         1-pound can black beans, rinsed and drained (This will yield approximately 10 ounces of beans.)
1        8-ounce can mango slices (packed in juice), drained (Reserve ¼ cup of the juice.)
½       cup finely chopped red bell pepper
½       cup thinly sliced green onion (green and white parts)
2        teaspoons vinegar
½       teaspoon ground cumin
¼       teaspoon salt   
          Pepper to taste
1        jalapeno pepper, finely chopped, seeds and inner membranes discarded (optional)

Gather ingredients

Mash mango

Slice onion

Chop jalapeno finely

Chop red pepper 

Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl

Add the reserved mango juice.  Mix well.

Chill thoroughly, and mix before serving.
