Roasted Corn, Black Bean & Mango Salad


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.

4 1/2 cups


  • 2 teaspoons canola oil

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 1/2 cups corn kernels, (from 3 ears)

  • 1 large ripe mango, (about 1 pound), peeled and diced

  • 1 15-ounce or 19-ounce can black beans, rinsed

  • ½ cup chopped red onion

  • ½ cup diced red bell pepper

  • 3 tablespoons lime juice

  • 1 small canned chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, (see Ingredient Note), drained and chopped

  • 1 ½ tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin

  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in corn and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 8 minutes. Transfer the corn mixture to a large bowl. Stir in mango, beans, onion, bell pepper, lime juice, chipotle, cilantro, cumin and salt.


Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 8 hours. Serve at room temperature.

Ingredient Note: Chipotle peppers are smoked jalapeños with a fiery taste that are canned in adobo sauce. Look for them in the Hispanic section of large supermarkets and in specialty stores.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
