Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.

Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in corn and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 8 minutes.

Transfer the corn mixture to a large bowl. Stir in mango, beans, onion, bell pepper, lime juice, chipotle, cilantro, cumin and salt.

Can be served immediately but will get better left for the flavors to mingle overnight in the refrigerator.

This looks like it will taste amazing. I make a smilar salsa sans Mango- what a great twist. I cannot wait to try this!

Absolutely delicious and beautiful! Mango added the sweetness into the salad, black bean and pan-roasted corn worked deliciously well with mango.

I used a bit more cumin and garlic, the salad was refreshingly tasty. I will definitely make it again.

Roasted Corn, Black Bean and Mango Salad looks gfreat, HOWEVER the recipe has left out the corn and the quantity of corn! Any ideas as to how much corn to be used, and fresh or frozen?

Thanks for your comment, I just updated the recipe, should be 1 1/2 cups of fresh corn kernels. And it is a delicious salad, enjoy!!
