Notes

This recipe is adaptable as per your preferences for the ingredients and the servings.
Instead of black beans you can also use beans like Red Kidney beans, Garbanzo beans/Chickpeas, Cannellini beans or even sprouts.
Cilantro can be replaced with parsley or basil leaves. Mint leaves also add zing and make it more refreshing.
I have not used any oil but you can always add 1 tbsp EVOO(Extra Virgin Olive Oil).
Other spices that you can use are roasted cumin powder, red chilli powder, garlic powder.Italian seasoning or zaatar will also work fine adding the mediterranean flavours to the salad.
Instead of mango you can add pineapple(fresh or grilled), peach, apricot, green apples or any other seasonal fruit. Kiwi fruit is also a great addition to this salsa which adds a citrus punch.
