Mexican Confetti Salad

“I wanted to put together a colorful and flavorful salad with a fresh Mexican twist. I tried to gather a variety of colors, flavors and textures. Mango isn’t your typical choice, and one could substitute corn and still have a yellow color, if desired, but it would completely change the character of this salad I also thought about adding black beans or sliced olives for one more dimension, but decided to stay with bright, cheerful colors.” – April Ferre
