Fresh Mango Salsa – Low Fat and Gluten Free

I love fresh mango salsa.  It is low fat, gluten free, and quick and easy.  It is one of my favorite “go to” recipes with so many different applications. It is wonderful to eat in the summer and it is wonderful to eat in the winter. I like to make it and serve it with fresh sliced “jicama” chips.  Jicama can be sometimes be found in your local grocery store or your local Latin market.  There is something nice about the combination of mangoes and black beans they just seem to go together.  Sometimes I add black beans to my mango salsa and toss it in with chopped kale or any type of salad greens to have as a quick and easy low fat lunch or dinner.  I even use it to top off black bean tacos or black bean burgers. Lately I have been getting great deals on this delectable stone fruit and have seen it on sale in all of our local stores.  I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do.
