I was inspired this afternoon to make kid-friendly
Mango Salsa because we have 7 mangoes that ripened all at the same time. It’s delicious and unique, and makes for a healthy snack to serve after school or during Sunday football games.
There are no onions – our kids go running if they see diced onions. And for the adults - give this snack a try during the week if you don’t want onion breath during that important meeting!
Our family weighs in:
- Son “loves it a lot” and couldn’t stop eating it
- Daughter gave it a “thumbs up”
- Husband liked it
- I thought it was yummy.
This recipe couldn’t be easier.
(by Striving Bean)
- 1 1/2 cup (1.5 cup) finely chopped mango (That’s about 1 large mango, or 2 small to medium mangos)
- 1/2 cup (0.5 cup) black beans (if using canned, be sure to rinse and drain well)
- 1/4 cup (0.25 cup) dried cranberries (like Craisins)
- 1 teaspoon orange juice
Mix mangoes and dried cranberries together. Then add orange juice. Carefully mix in black beans. Serve with corn chips or Baked Tostitos Scoops.
(Note: omit the dried cranberries for children under 4. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends to avoid dried fruit since it can be a choking hazard for very young children.)
This is my first time making mango salsa – it’s so good, I can’t believe I waited this long.
