Although it may sound like an odd combination of foods, at least it did to me at first, it is a tasty and hearty salad. You may want to alter the dressing and onion amounts to your taste.

Delicious! I used frozen mangos (from Trader Joe's) doubled the cilantro and added green onions. I garnished with cherry tomatos. It tasted even better the next day. Thank you for a great recipe! Read More

This is all right. I added kiwi since I had some on hand and used red onion since that's all I had... but the bean-fruit combination doesn't work for me. It's decent diet food but I won't be making it again. Read More

Quick to prepare and delicious; and better the next day as others stated. I made it first with mango then a couple weeks later with some peaches that needed a use before they turned. Both were very good though mango adds a little more complexity with the "tropical" flavor. Read More

Strange but very good. I used only white beans and did not have cilantro; would have been even better wtih the cilantro. Makes a nice side to a spicy mexican meal; I served it with chicken tacos -- yum! Read More

I made this for a group of women. It was a big hit. Many went back for second and third helpings. I added some finely chopped celery and used a whole can of black beans and butter beans. Made it earlier so the flavors would have time to blend. Read More

This was really tasty! I used cannallini beans instead of navy beans. And for the onion I used red onion. My boyfriend doesn't usually like 'fruity' dishes but he loved this! Will definitely make again! Read More

This was a delicious healthy summery salad. Just the sort of thing I was looking for. The only modification I made was adding some salt and pepper. Tastes better after being in the fridge for a day. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. Read More
