Jicama, Mango & Black Bean Salad

Made this fresh, crunchy, sweet-salty-sour side dish tonight, and went back for seconds!

1 small jicama, peeled and diced

1 can black beans, drained

1 large mango peeled and diced

1/4 of a medium red onion, minced

Good handful of cilantro (or flat leaf parsley) minced

Gently toss the above together with the following dressing:

Juice of one large lime (also add a little of the lime peel, grated)

2 teaspoons your favorite vinegar

1 T. honey

1/4 c. good olive oil

1/4 t. salt

(Whisk all together)

Finally, sprinkle all with Tajin Mexican seasoning (combo of chili, salt and lime -- see picture below) or Tony's Cajun seasoning to taste.

(I love this Tajin seasoning on fruits and vegies!)

Fabulous as a side dish, and would be a wonderful picnic or potluck salad. Also would be yummy on top of fish or shredded chicken tacos or carnitas.
