Chili Lime Texas Caviar (Cowboy Caviar)

Chili Lime Texas Caviar (also known as Cowboy Caviar) is the BEST salad, side dish or dip for any occasion! Vegan AND gluten free!

A great light and healthy snack, this Cowboy Caviar is a combination of a dip meets side salad meets a bean salsa all in one. You can also serve it like a salsa or Pico de Gallo! It was only fitting to pair this with my popular dressing from this Grilled Chili Lime Chicken Fajita Salad.

Cowboy Caviar

A bowl full of health! Black-eyed peas (also known as black-eye beans), black beans, sweet corn, grape tomatoes (or you can use cherry tomatoes or finely diced Roma tomatoes), peppers (capsicums) and avocados make this one incredibly fresh big bowl of flavours perfect for get togethers, pot lucks, barbecues, or anything you need it for. Mixed through with the best tasty dressing I created two years ago.

Dressing

The dressing is so simple, yet filled with so many incredible flavours:

  • olive oil
  • fresh squeezed lime juice
  • brown sugar (balances out the acidity of the lime juice. Substitute with honey if you wish).
  • red chilli flakes
  • cilantro (or substitute with parsley)
  • garlic
  • cumin

All of the ingredients combined together are sensational. Serve with corn chips or nacho chips to get that saltiness mixing through the tang and sweetness with every mouthful.
