Roasted Corn, Black Bean & Mango Salad

Summer 2004, The EatingWell Diabetes Cookbook (2005)

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (117 votes)

This simple, fresh-tasting salad adds delicious variety to grilled foods, such as salmon, halibut, chicken or pork. Browning the corn in a skillet gives it a nutty, caramelized flavor that contrasts with the sweetness of the mango.

"I did enjoy this salad, but it is REALLY spicy. I enjoy spicy foods, but this was almost too spicy for me and I even left out a couple of the chipotle peppers! "

Great Side!

If you read the directions very carefully, it says to use one canned chipotle pepper in adobo NOT the whole can, just one out of the can! This gives it a nice spice but doesn't overwell the rest of the flavors!!!
We love this recipe and make it thruout the summer months, grilling the corn instead of frying it so you get the nice char taste from the grill. Yummy!

Yes, thank you for the

Yes, thank you for the clarification - ONE pepper. This recipe is not too spicy if you can read directions.


I LOVED this medley but I only used HALF the can of Chipotle peppers and it was still very spicy--not too spicy, in fact, it was just right. But I cannot imagine how hot it would've been had I used the whole can. Also, I used canned organic corn as fresh organic corn on the cob can be very difficult to find. It was still wonderful. For those who have trouble digesting corn, try the organic variety. The conventional corn--or non-organic--is too genetically modified for some digestive systems.

Great way to incorporate beans into your diet

The recipe says 1 CANNED

The recipe says 1 CANNED chipotle pepper, Not 1 CAN of chipotle peppers.

Awesome Salad

I got this recipe from Cooking Light magazine July, 2000 issue.
I make a "double" of this batch, flavor improves over a few days.
It's a family favorite.
I don't use the chipoltes.

Interesting mix of flavors
Great Summer Salad

I loved this salad. I added sliced chicken breast to it to make it a full meal. I didn't find this too spicy at all and thought the chipotle peppers were a great idea. It was some nice heat for a cool summer salad. I'd definitely make this again.

Party winner

I used real uncooked beans a whole bag like 16 oz (that i prepared) not canned and an extra chipotle and two mangos, i really love mangos! and just used extra lime juice and cumin to taste and more cilantro also... like a 1/4 to 1/2 cup chopped...the flavors work really well together and i peppered the corn while it was in the pan. Very very delicious recipe
