Ingredients

Black Beans

  • 3 cups black beans, soak for eight hours
  • 1 cup brown lentils
  • 2 medium white onions, finely chopped
  • 2 large ripe mangoes, cubed
  • 2 teaspoons of ground cumin
  • zest from 1 orange
  • 1/2 cup finely diced red onion
  • 1 bunch Cilantro
  • Salinity™ Salts Black Garlic Finishing Salt, to taste

Vinaigrette

  • 2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • Fresh ground pepper, to taste (optional)
  • Salinity™ Salts !Fire! Finishing Salt or Black Garlic Finishing Salt, to taste

Directions

Salad

Rinse and then soak the beans in cold water for eight hours (or overnight). Rinse beans under cold water and strain. In a large pot, add enough water to cover the beans and cook until half done (for approximately 20 minutes). Add the lentils and more water, if necessary, and cook for another 20 minutes. Meanwhile, in a separate pan, sauté the onions and cumin in 1 tablespoon of olive oil until translucent.

Remove the beans and lentils from the heat. Cube the mangoes and chop the cilantro and set aside. Prepare the vinaigrette. Put the beans in a large mixing bowl. Gradually drizzle the vinaigrette and toss until the mixture is coated. Divide into individual salad bowls, adding freshly ground pepper, to taste. Top with mangoes, chopped cilantro and orange zest. Sprinkle salads with Black Garlic Finishing Salt and garnish with a sprig of cilantro.

Vinaigrette

In small bowl, whisk all ingredients together until combined.
