This colorful Spicy Cowboy Caviar is packed with tons of fresh and healthy ingredients! It takes minutes to whip up for a fresh and tasty snack!
First off- Happy almost Cinco De Mayo. Secondly, Happy Friday- the best day of the week..because for obvious reasons..the weekend that begins at 5pm. At least for me anyways. If you are wanting a healthy snack with some spice this weekend, you need to make this Spicy Cowboy Caviar!
There are all kinds of fresh vegetables in this tasty recipe. You can add any of your favorite veggies and beans to this recipe. It is light and refreshing and is dressed with simple oil and vinegar dressing with a little spiciness added*. If you are one of those that can handle the heat, add more spice!
Avocados are my favorite and I lovvve them in just about everything so I add cubed avo to this when serving. I typically don’t like to add it in the mix because it will turn brown if it’s being stored afterwards.
Speaking of avos, you must try my homemade guacamole recipe!
This Spicy Cowboy Caviar is a great salad topper, side dish, or one of my favorites… a dip!
This Spicy Cowboy Caviar dip reminds me of a salsa- you can almost use it for anything! Add a few scoops to your chicken, steak, bake potato, or just enjoy as is. I prefer to dip extra salty tortilla chips in this dip, they make the perfect match. You just need to try it for yourself!
I like to let my ‘caviar’ sit in the fridge for about 30 minutes after mixing so the dressing can absorb into all of the fresh ingredients. This is also a great way to use up any leftover veggies you are trying to get rid of! You’re welcome.
