Today is national caviar day. While I fish egg caviar is not one of my favorites I do have a favorite caviar recipe. That recipe would be cowboy caviar.
A good way to get our children to eat a bit healthier. Cowboy caviar is filled with nutrition rich ingredients.
1 (15 ounce) can seasoned black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained well
1 (15 ounce) can seasoned or plain black beans, rinsed and drained well
3/4 cup frozen sweet corn, thawed
3 green onions, chopped
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
2 or 3 tomatoes, diced
10 jarred jalapeno pepper slices, diced (mild or hot depending on preference)
1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
1 ripe avocado, chopped
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
- 1/2 lime, juiced
- 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- Salt and pepper to taste
Combine black eyed peas, beans, corn, green onion, bell pepper, tomatoes, jalapenos, and cilantro in a medium bowl. In a small bowl whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, lime juice, Dijon mustard, and salt and pepper. Pour over bean mixture. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Just before serving, add avocado and gently stir to combine. Serve with tortilla chips.
