Canned beans are a great option for working protein and fiber into dishes. We tested this mango and black bean salad with organic, no-salt-added beans to keep sodium in check. The sweet mango brightens the earthiness of the beans and wild rice. Garnish with fresh cilantro. Serve with spicy pork tenderloins.
