Yummy Summer Recipe {Mango, Avo, Black Bean Salad}

I made this the other night and it was so delicious and light.  I’m kind of obsessed with avocado (it’s so good for you!) and I love finding new ways to eat it.  I had this over some fresh greens with a handful of pita chips on the side.
Mango, Avocado, Black Bean Salad with Lime Dressing
What you’ll need:
1 ripe (but firm) avocado, halved, peeled and cubed
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice, divided
1 ripe (but firm) mango, peeled and cubed
1 fresh jalapeño pepper (a small one), stemmed, seeded and finely chopped
1/2 tsp grated lime zest 
2 Tbsp chopped cilantro
pinch of sea salt
pinch of freshly ground black pepper
pinch sugar (Stevia)
1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 of (15 oz) can no-salt-added black beans, rinsed and drained
What to do:
Gently toss avocado with 1/2 Tbsp of the lime juice in a medium bowl.  Add mango and jalapeño and gently toss to combine. Set aside.  In a separate medium sized bowl, whisk together remaining lime juice, lime zest, cilantro, sea salt, pepper and sugar.  Whisk in oil until thoroughly combined to make a thick dressing.  Add avocado mixture and black beans and toss gently.  Toss in a little cilantro and serve immediately.
Forgot to take a picture…shocker.  Here’s the one from the WF website….
