Let’s face it, grilled chicken can be pretty boring, but not if you serve it with this zesty salsa. You may want to even make this salsa on it’s own, it makes a fantastic dip if you serve it with chips – seriously so good! Sometimes, I even throw in some diced avocado,  yum!

This is perfect to make for a weeknight dinner, it’s quick and light, high in fiber, protein, and gluten-free.

  3. Made this tonight. This was delicious.

  4. Any tips for dicing mango? I picked a ripe one according to comments but trying to peel and cut it kind of turned it to mushy stringy chunks.

  5. Do you cook the black bean ahead of time?
