Honestly, no matter how you serve it, you and your guests are going to love it.

I made Cowboy Caviar for our brunch this past weekend, and I have also made it for card nights with our friends. In fact, my husband and I actually had leftovers for lunch the other day 🙂 In fact, as I am thinking about it…Cowboy Caviar would be amazing on top of grilled chicken! Oh, all those fresh flavors, then the heat from the jalapenos and the citrus from the lime…YUM. Ok, I am going to have to try that next!

Healthy Cowboy Caviar

To make Cowboy Caviar you need:

3 tomatoes seeds removed, diced – I used vine tomatoes
2 ripe avocados, diced
1/2 cup red onion, diced
1 15 oz can black beans rinsed and drained
1 15 oz can black eyed peas rinsed and drained
1 1/2 cups fresh corn, cooked and cut off the cob – approx 3 ears
1 bell pepper, diced
2 jalapeno pepper seeds removed, diced
1/3 cup fresh Cilantro finely chopped

You will also make your own simple dressing to toss all goodness in. You will need a few basic ingredients that you probably have at home right now.

To make the dressing for your Cowboy Caviar you will need:

1/3 cup olive oil
Juice from 2 limes, approx 2 – 3 tablespoons
2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon minced garlic

And to make it, you simply mix all your veggies together, drizzle on the dressing and stir well to coat! I like to put mine in the refrigerator for 15 – 30 minutes before serving so that all the flavors get a chance to marinate together before everyone digs in.
