Just in time for summer, I’m on a quest to find the most tasty, clean and raw recipes that I can – the perk?
Clean, healthy, nutrient-rich food AND no cooking!
(Tell me this doesn’t look like the most delicious summer “salad” recipe!)
This is a recipe adapted from Whole Foods Market.
Mango, Avocado and Black Bean Salad with Lime Dressing
2 ripe, but firm, avocados: halved, peeled and cubed.
3 Tablespoons lime juice: divided.
2 ripe, but firm, mangoes: peeled and cubed.
1 fresh jalapeño pepper: stemmed, seeded and finely chopped.
1 teaspoon grated lime zest
2 Tablespoons chopped cilantro, plus more for garnish.
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon agave nectar
3 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 1/2 cups black beans (15 oz can no-salt added black beans, rinsed and drained)
Gently toss avocado with 1 tablespoon of the lime juice in a medium bowl. Add mango and jalapeño and gently toss to combine. Set aside.
Whisk together remaining 2 tablespoons lime juice, zest, cilantro, salt, pepper and sugar in a large bowl. Whisk in oil until thoroughly combined to make a thick dressing. Add avocado mixture and black beans and toss gently. Spoon salad onto plates, garnish with cilantro and serve immediately.
