This easy Avocado, Mango and Black Bean Salsa is full of fresh and healthy vegetables and whips up in no time. A great party dip recipe!
How do you feel about salsa dips? Because I feel very strongly about them.
There is never a tortilla chip without 5 minute homemade fresh salsa in our house, and this Avocado, Mango and Black Bean Salsa right here is definitely one of my favorites.I have been making it for years and years and years, so many times that it completely slipped my mind to share the recipe with you. Though at this point it’s not so much of a recipe anymore, but rather something I could probably make while sleeping. Or holding a toddler.
Oh wait, that last one happens during every dinner prep.
The really great thing about this black bean salsa dip though? It totally works as a salad as well. I mean, even if you eat it as a chip-and-dip kind of meal on the couch after the kids have gone to bed, you’ll feel good about yourself.
Not that I’d ever do that or anything.
Now look, this isn’t really a hot black bean salsa. We don’t do spicy very often around here. I’d say it’s because of the 20 month old, but I think she might tolerate heat even better than me.
If you like it spicy, you can always chop up some chili to add. You can also use more than one red onion. The most important thing is to chop everything into kind of equal pieces, preferably small enough to be easily scoopable with a chip.
Now please excuse me while I go hide on the couch with buckets of chips and black bean salsa.
Avocado, Mango and Black Bean Salsa Recipe
- 1 large red pepper diced
- 1/2 pound cherry tomatoes diced
- 1 avocado pitted and diced
- 1 red onion diced
- 1 mango peeled, pitted and diced
- 1 small can corn kernels
- 1 15- ounce can black beans
For the Dressing
- Juice of 2-3 limes depending on the size and yield of your limes
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- Large handful of cilantro chopped
- Salt & pepper to taste
- Mix all ingredients for the salsa in a large bowl. Combine the ingredients for the dressing in a measuring jug and whisk together well. Pour over the salsa and carefully stir. Serve immediately.
If you want to make the salsa in advance, leave out the mango and avocado and add them just before serving. Without the mango and avocado, the dip keeps covered and refrigerated for 24h.
