Cowboy Caviar Recipe
Healthy, hearty, and packed with protein. It's one of my favorite easy camping recipes!
  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste (may be spiced with Tabasco)
  • 1 can black-eyed peas, drained (or black white, or pinto beans)
  • 1 can corn
  • 1 cup green onions, chopped
  • 1 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 1 cup tomatoes seeded and chopped (or unseeded Roma tomatoes are fine)
  • 2 avocados, diced (more or less to taste)
  1. This dish couldn't be more easy! Just combine ingredients for the dressing then mix in solid stuff. Serve with tortilla chips.
  2. If you are making it a day ahead and can avoid it, don't add the tomatoes and avocados until just before you serve it. I suspect adding a squeeze of lemon to the finished dish will keep the avocados from browning, but I haven't tried that yet.
