DSC_0014_1-2

Hello Everyone !!!! 

Hope you all are enjoying this hot weather pheww, am not complaining lol we should all enjoy while it lasts . To beat this summer I am bringing you all a delicious mango black bean salad with a finger licking chipotle lime dressing . Trust me you have got to try this easy to make salad and I promise that you will never go wrong with this recipe . This salad is not only delicious & summery , its also loaded with vegetables and a low calorie dressing which you can make in bulk and freeze it in batches. 

I used the King of fruits (Mango) here because its my favourite fruit and its the most summery fruit I can ever think of lol . While growing up during summer times the amount of mangoes we have eaten is unbelievable . So I wanted to make something using that same fruit with a few different flavours in that . I have seen in several TV shows about the abundant use of mangoes (raw & ripe) in Mexican cuisine , that got me thinking about doing something similar . So few days of researching , reading few materials I decided to make a salad using ripe mangoes and black bean with a chipotle dressing . The idea behind this dressing is that I wanted to give some acidity & spice to the salad , and it worked perfect with mango & black bean.
