READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Sharon123

I tried Kashi black beans and mango salsa, and have thought about making some ever since. So here is a Caribbean version. To be really healthy, saute vegetables in water or other liquid, or you may use the olive oil. Your choice! Enjoy! Recipe is from Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease by Caldwell B.

I wasn't too sure about the orange juice, but with the salsa it went great.
