Cowboy Caviar

In honor of Pioneer Day I thought I'd whip up one of my new favorite recipes: Cowboy Caviar. Its a perfect dip or salad for a hot summer day.


2 T red wine vinegar

1 1/2 to 2 tsp hot sauce

1 1/2 tsp salad oil

1 clove garlic, minced

1/8 tsp pepper

2 firm-ripe avocados

1 15 oz can black-eyed peas

1 11 oz can corn

2/3 cup sliced green onion

2/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro

2-3 tomatoes, chopped


1 bag tortilla chips

2 cups shredded lettuce or cabbage (optional)

1 - In a large bowl, mix vinegar, hot sauce, oil, garlic, and pepper. Peel, pit and cut avocado into 1/2-inch cubes. Add to vinegar mixture and mix gently to coat.

2 - Drain and rinse peas and corn. Add peas, corn, onions, cilantro and tomatoes to avocado mixture. Mix gently to coat. Add salt to taste.

3. Serve with chips or add lettuce/cabbage to made a delicious salad.

Hope you enjoy!
