  • ½ cup cooked black beans - you can cook them yourself but canned beans will work quite nicely.
  • 1 medium mango ripe
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • ½ red onion
  • Juice from 3 limes
  • 8 tablespoons pineapple juice
  • 1/3 cup of fresh cilantro
  • 1- tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 jalapeno chili pepper
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste


  • Peel & pit the mango and then dice it into ¼ inch pieces.
  • Core and seed the bell pepper and dice into small pieces.
  • Peel and dice the onion into equal sized pieces.
  • Squeeze the juice from the limes and have it ready.
  • Chop the cilantro finely.
  • Stem, seed and mince the jalapeno pepper. Be careful not to touch your hands to your eyes after working with this chile pepper.
  • Combine all the ingredients together in one good sized bowl. Taste and adjust seasonings with the salt and pepper. Don't overwork the salsa or it will become a big mush.

You can serve this whenever, but it will taste even better if you let it size a while in the refrigerator up to a few days.
