"Although it may sound like an odd combination of foods, at least it did to me at first, it is a tasty and hearty salad. You may want to alter the dressing and onion amounts to your taste." — JMOONBABY

Delicious! I used frozen mangos (from Trader Joe's), doubled the cilantro and added green onions. I garnished with cherry tomatos. It tasted even better the next day. Thank you for a great recipe!
This is all right. I added kiwi since I had some on hand and used red onion since that's all I had... but the bean-fruit combination doesn't work for me. It's decent diet food, but I won't be making it again.
Quick to prepare and delicious; and better the next day as others stated. I made it first with mango, then a couple weeks later with some peaches that needed a use before they turned. Both were very good, though mango adds a little more complexity with the "tropical" flavor.
Strange, but very good. I used only white beans and did not have cilantro; would have been even better wtih the cilantro. Makes a nice side to a spicy mexican meal; I served it with chicken tacos -- yum!
This was really tasty! I used cannallini beans instead of navy beans. And, for the onion, I used red onion. My boyfriend doesn't usually like 'fruity' dishes, but he loved this! Will definitely make again!
I made this for a group of women. It was a big hit. Many went back for second and third helpings. I added some finely chopped celery and used a whole can of black beans and butter beans. Made it earlier so the flavors would have time to blend.
This was a delicious, healthy, summery salad. Just the sort of thing I was looking for. The only modification I made was adding some salt and pepper. Tastes better after being in the fridge for a day. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.
5 stars for certain. I added a bit of sea salt and a little extra dressing to mine. It was FABULOUS!
