Black Bean Mango Salad!

mmm, love this:  lettuce, scallions, red bell pepper, any other salad stuff you want to throw in (e.g., endive, radicchio), mango, black beans, cilantro, lime juice, ground cumin, touch of chipotle powder.

oops, forgot the avocado. 

Now it's perfect.   I made bigger batch to take to a potluck.  Tomorrow lunch I'm going to a restaurant, so I'm going to do something similar.  I'll prepare ahead of time a bowl of black beans, mango, lime, cilantro, cumin, and will order a garden salad and dump my mixture on top.  Then I'll probably be out of black beans though I'll still have some mango left.  I wonder what I'll do for dinner.

I think I'll have to start doing the dump stuff on salad tactic you describe. Restaurant food has just been awful the last few times.

I did it today at pizzeria uno and it was fantastic. I ordered a big garden salad with avocado slices. I pre-prepared a container of black beans, mango, cumin, cilantro, lime juice, chipotle powder; dumped it on the salad and had a wonderful meal!
