  • 1 tsp fine kosher salt

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together all ingredients for vinaigrette. Pour over salad, stir well and enjoy!


We like to serve this black bean mango salad as a summery side dish alongside grilled veggies or meats.

Make ahead: This is a great salad to make ahead since it actually tastes better after sitting for a few hours. For maximum flavor, we suggest making this salad a minimum of 3 hours before serving to give the dressing plenty of time to flavor the beans and corn. 

Cooking the corn: We'd recommend cooking the corn unhusked. Make sure to turn the corn frequently, as it can burn rather easily on the grill.
