    cookiedog's Note:

    I watched Ina make this on TV today and it looked so colorful I just have to try it. You may want to adjust the jalapeños to taste, add some mango, and if you are watching your calories- eliminate or reduce the olive oil.

      We love this salad at our house. I make it every couple of weeks. I saw this on Barefoot Contessa and it looked so good I made it the next day. It is very healthy. My daughters frielnds all ask for it and comment that they can't believe they eating it since they don't really like anything that is in it. They all love it. I usually divide it in half before adding the avacado and only add it to half since it doesn't keep. I then add the avacado to the other half a day or 2 later. Yummy!!!

      I -adore- this recipe for its flavor and its healthy ingredients, especially when served over spinach. One caveat, however: the combination of avocado, olive oil and black beans leads to a surprisingly high calorie content-per-serving (close to 500). Cooks with calorie concerns may wish to use less of one or all of those ingredients, or reduce the serving size.

      I made this for lunch today, exactly as described, except that I left out the yellow peppers. Also, I made and served it all at the same time. It was really, really good! The lime juice and zest really add something special. I'm a huge fan of guacamole, but this might even be better! Will definitely be making this again.
