When you’re bored of lettuce and mixed green salads, mix things up with a hearty protein-packed bean and mango salad. This simple bean and mango salad recipe is a crunchy and flavourful vegetarian dish that’s easy to make, and filling too.  You can use black beans, or mixed beans if you like, as I did in this recipe!
