Mixed Beans Mango Salad / 15 Beans Mango Salad

How can a summer special post ends without a mango recipe?! So for the final day post on the theme "Summer Salad" going to share a super delicious n nutritious salad with Mixed Beans and Mango, both raw n ripe mangoes. Long back i bookmarked this salad from Taste of Home site. The original recipe is with Black beans only but i recreated with mixed beans/15 beans combo. Usually i make Sundal and curry with the 15beans. This 15 beans pack are available at all local grocery stores. It comprises of mixed beans, peas, lentils and are as follows...black beans, red beans, Dark and Light Red kidney beans, navy beans, great northern bean,Large and,Baby lima beans,pinto beans,Green and Yellow split peas, black-eyed peas,Various forms of lentil- Red Chief, Eston, Pardina, Crimson, Cranberry beans (shell beans), chick peas, Small white bean, Pink Bean.
For today's post i actually wanted to share a fruit salad but except mangoes n apples everything was over. Then i decided to make some simple salad with mango n mixed beans which i soaked to make sundal. Leave some setting time for this salad, so that the dressing blends completely with the beans n fruits. This recipe was adapted from Taste of Home.

  9. Salt    to taste
