Delicious Black Bean and Mandarin Orange Salsa Recipe

Most black bean salsas include corn in the recipe, both for flavor and color contrast. This one, however, uses sweet mandarin oranges. The salsa is attractive to look at and it tastes delightful. The sweetness of the oranges goes nicely with the saltiness of the beans. The other ingredients do their part to add to the flavor party as all the ingredients marinate together. Serve this salsa with chips, fish, chicken, or pork for a fabulous meal. It also goes well with barbecue or roasted meat.

This salsa needs to marinate for a few hours before serving. You can easily make it ahead of time and let it sit in the refrigerator until you need it. Take it along when tail-gating or attending a potluck. This recipe is pretty stable and can take travel well. You will be amazed at how quickly the salsa is eaten! Be sure to bring enough so everyone can enjoy it.

This salsa recipe can also be served as a side dish. A bite of the salsa can go along with rice or refried beans to add flavor and texture to the other dish. Unlike many fruit salsas, this one will hold up for a couple days, so make a big batch and enjoy it. Once you have tried this black bean and mandarin orange salsa recipe, you may feel more confident about experimenting on your own with other salsa recipes. There is no reason to be constrained by tradition; try new flavor combinations and see where it leads you.
