Roasted Corn, Black Bean and Mango Salad

Many thanks to my sister for suggesting we make this for the BBQ we went to last weekend.
The refreshing lime dressing really works well and the complete lack of fat was a wonderful side benefit. I’m always willing to cut fat as long as it doesn’t cut flavor.


4 ears of Corn, roasted on the grill
16 oz/1 lb diced Mango
15oz can of Black Beans, drained and rinsed well
½ cup Red Onions
1 Jalapeño, seeded and finely chopped
2 Tbsp Shallots, minced
½ cup Red Pepper
4 Tbsp Lime Juice, fresh squeezed
3 Tbsp Cilantro, chopped loosely
½ tsp Cumin, ground
¼ tsp Smoked Paprika
Salt to taste
Roast the corn until done and then cut off the cob. Mix all ingredients together, and finish with the lime juice, cumin and smoked paprika. Mix gently, then cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
