Cowboy Caviar

Whipped up a batch of Cowboy Caviar in honor of tonight’s Country Christmas themed Annual Company Party.  I can not wait.  While we work (and play) hard all throughout the year, the Christmas Party is a chance to spend an evening with my second family and their spouses.  And inevitably make memories that will last us until next year’s party :)  Did I mention, I can not wait!

Cowboy Caviar

Looking for an easy appetizer to bring to a holiday party….Cowboy Caviar might just be the answer.  What makes this an easy no fuss recipe is you can substitute any ingredient with what you have on hand.  Just use a nice combination of crunches and colors.  We had a can of black eyed peas in the pantry, but kidney or black beans would be great too.  I used a zucchini for my ‘green’ but avocado is wonderful in this dip as well.  I’m a black olive freak so I added some of those, along with corn, jalapeno, red onion, radish, pimento, garlic, scallion, cilantro and tossed it all in a cumin lime dressing.  Serve with tortilla chips and look how cute it is delivered in a mason jar!!
