Mango, Avocado and Black Bean Salad with Lime Dressing

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

 Serves 6


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.
