Maria's Sunshine Salad

Isn't this salad just beautiful? I found this recipe on Two Peas and Their Pod by Maria. Hence, the name: Maria's Sunshine Salad! I think it's the perfect Spring salad. Bright and cheerful, plus it tastes amazing!

Maria's Sunshine Salad

Romaine Lettuce, Chopped
1 can Black Beans- low sodium- rinsed and drained
1 tomato, chopped
1 avocado, diced
1 mango, diced *
1/2 red onion, diced
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
2 limes- squeeze fresh juice over salad

Place the romaine on a plate or bowl. Top with all of the ingredients, except for the limes juice. Squeeze fresh lime juice over the salad. If you want a little more dressing flavor, try topping with Salsa or Cilantro Lime Dressing! Enjoy!
