  1. Put the romaine on plates or in bowls. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the beans, corn, mango, avocado, onions, bell peppers, and jalapeño.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the lime juice, cilantro, oil, chili powder, pepper, and salt until well mixed. (You can also put the ingredients in a Mason jar with a secure lid and shake.) Pour over the bean mixture, gently tossing to coat.
  4. Spoon over the romaine.

Cooking Tip: Scoop up this salad with crunchy vegetables, such as cucumber or jicama sliced crosswise into rounds.

Keep it Healthy: Rinsing and draining canned beans helps remove some of the extra sodium.

Tip: To make this an entrée, put one serving on a 6-inch whole-wheat tortilla (lowest sodium available) or in a half whole-wheat pita pocket (lowest sodium available).

Tip: Store this salad in the refrigerator, covered, up to 5 days.
