This fresh-tasting combination is great with chips or grilled salmon, chicken or pork chops. But it’s so good, sometimes I just eat it with a spoon! —Lindsay Anderson, Inman, Kansas

"excellent salsa. easy to stir up. Can be adapted easily for each families taste.

While I like mango, my daughter doesn't, so when she is around, I leave it out."

"FANTASTIC recipe! I don't like avocados or black beans, and I still LOVE this! I took it to a party and the other guests loved it, and I'm planning on making it for company again tonight. Delicious! And I wouldn't change a thing about it."

"I made this salsa for the Labor Day weekend and everyone loved it! Only changes were that I used the whole can of black beans and replaced the jalapeno pepper with an Anaheim pepper. Delicious and different recipe that is great with tortilla chips but also worked well as an addition to wraps."

"Made this for a bridal shower and everyone raved about it, didn't last long. I didn't use the jalapeno pepper and only used 1/4 cup of cilantro that was plenty."
