In-season mango shares the stage with jicama and black beans for a colorful and zesty salsa that can also be served as a salad. It’s the perfect dish to bring to any celebration or gathering. Make sure the lime juice is ready before dicing the jicama, as it helps keep the jicama from turning brown too quickly. Jicama is low in calories and high in vitamin C -- plus it adds a crunchy texture to the high-fiber, antioxidant-rich black beans and mango. As a salsa, this pairs well with fish, chicken and pork.
