Mango salsa
1 lg mango, diced
3 tomatoes, diced
2 lg onions, diced
1 bunch cilantro, chopped
Lime juice

Combine in a bowl and serve generously over the beans and rice. Add salt and lime juice to taste.

(Also good chilled the next day!)

Notes:
– Local beans similar to blackeyed peas are called niébé. They can be found fresh or dried depending on the time if year. Dee-licious.

– CityDia sometimes carries brown rice.
