Beans are an incredibly healthy addition to your diet adding fiber, iron, b vitamins & best of all they help balance your blood sugar. They are also a very economical buy and so versatile. I love making this salad to add to wraps, to have as a side with chips or just by itself with a big spoon :). It packs so many nutrients and so much flavor, with a little spicy, a little sweet it has the perfect balance. It is best made the day ahead or at least a few hours and chilled in the fridge.
-1 can black beans rinsed
-1 can red kidney beans (if you like reallly bean-y)
-1 mango chopped-(if you are like me and needed to research how to cut a mango go here)
-1 small jicama chopped
-1 red bell pepper and 1 yellow bell pepper chopped
-1 spanish onion or sweet onion for less bite
-2 tbsp (for spicy) green chili sauce (can find in ethnic aisle in grocery store)
-few tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
-1-2 tbsp honey/agave
-1 lemon juice, splash of lime juice
-splash apple cider vinegar
-optional- for added heat chop preferred hot pepper- (jalapeno, Serrano…)
Mix everything well at least 2 hours before ready to eat and leave chilled in the fridge.
