  • Active Time 45m
  • Total Time 45m

8 servings, generous 1/2 cup each

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.

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

ingredients

  • 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
  • One 15-ounce or 19-ounce can black beans, rinsed
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 small canned chipotle pepper in adobo sauce (see Ingredient Note), drained and chopped
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Ingredient Note: Chipotle peppers are smoked jalapenos with a fiery taste that are canned in adobo sauce. Look for them in the Hispanic section of large supermarkets and in specialty stores.

directions

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