    This is my go to recipe on hot days , but I could eat everyday love love this recipe.
    I use frozen mango as well as frozen corn. I zest the lime before squeezing juice. If I have jalapeño I add or I just add pepper flakes. When I’m feeling energetic I cube avocado in the salad making it a little creamier.
    Thanks so much for putting this together for us.

      1. Yes, you can. I recommend not adding the dressing until you are ready to serve.

  2. 5 stars
    I have occasionally made regular black bean and corn salsa with diced tomatoes for about 10 years now. But, upon trying this variation, I might not ever go back to the plain and traditional recipe I have always used. This is definitely a recipe I would consider a “keeper”! Thank you!

    This was delicious!! Finally found a colorful salad without tomatoes. I made this to as a side for smoked pork butt. I will definitely be making this again but this time I will be sure to have tortilla chips on hand.
