Mango Black Bean Salad
This refreshing salad is a perfect way to enjoy the sweet and tangy flavours of ripe mangoes, combined with the protein, fibre and iron of the black beans and the fresh crunch of peppers and onions. The lime juice adds a bright and zesty flavour without the need for any added oil. Enjoy!
