Garden Fresh Cowboy Caviar

Sometimes you have to change things up a bit and go for the gold. And making our super delicious Garden Fresh Cowboy Caviar is one way to add a tasty splash of color to your next backyard barbecue. 

We’re rustling up the freshest dip this side of the farmer’s market!

This kinda-sorta salad but more like a dip side piece is literally bursting with all kinds of color-drenched flavor and your taste buds won’t know what to do with themselves. It is similar to our  Sweet Corn Pico de Gallo we shared last year. It’s like someone emptied the whole garden into a bowl, added a bit of sunshine and said, “You’re welcome!” And to be honest, it’s not too far from the truth. Then there are all of the healthy-ish aspects of this dish; this is a very real no guilt goldmine!

Eating the rainbow never looked so good!

This is summer eating at its finest! There are black-eyed peas and black beans in there, avocado, fresh cilantro, cherry tomatoes, green, red and yellow bell peppers, cucumber, jalapeños peppers, red onion, sweet corn kernels, and the whole thing is drizzled with quality extra virgin olive oil, and seasoned with flaky sea salt. As an afterthought, I speckled a bit of freshly cracked black peppercorn on top to show off.

You’re gonna need more tortilla chips for this big bad bowl of flavor bomb goodness!

So, if you are into foods that not only look good but taste like a million and one dollars, then this is the perfect bowl of yum for you to make! And a bonus, your friends and family will more than likely thank you!

I once heard that the best things in life come in bowls. That’s probably true.
