Black Bean and Avocado Salad with Oranges or Mango

Avocado and black bean salad

Black beans, diced mango, and avocado taste heavenly together in this delicious salad recipe. Fresh, perfectly ripe mangos are best, of course, but they’re not always in season and occasionally unreliable. Once in a while I like to take the guesswork out of mangos and use canned (organic), which is akin to using canned pineapple—you know exactly what you’re going to get. Otherwise, tiny clementine sections work well to give little bursts of fruity flavor.
