we used to not like mangoes because we had never had the good kind of mangoes. we got the good kind in a bountiful basket a few times and they are like candy. totally good. costco has them too.
not so good mango...
anyway, here's the recipe:
Mango Quinoa Salad
2 cups cooked quinoa* at room temperature, or chilled
1 14 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 medium mango, peeled and diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
6 green onions, thinly sliced
1 handful chopped cilantro (about 1/2 cup)
4 tablespoon red wine vinegar
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1-2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
freshly cracked black pepper
Place cooked quinoa in a large bowl. Add mango, red pepper, green onion, black beans, and cilantro. In a small bowl combine vinegar, olive oil, and lime juice. Whisk until smooth and pour on top of salad. Toss to combine and add salt and pepper to taste. Chill for at least one hour before serving.
NOTE (8/4/11): i take back my snobby mango comments. we made this at mom's house and used the other kind of mangos. they were totally good (but not AS good) and had way more "meat" on them. maybe i just didn't like them at all before ...
