cowboy caviar (salad or side)

Cowboy Caviar is a fun name for a Southwestern-style bean and veggie salad. I used pinto beans in mine, which I love, but since the beans are the “caviar” here, maybe I should have used black beans instead to really give it that visual effect. The rest is a mix of chopped veggies…things like bell pepper, hot pepper, scallions, tomatoes, avocado and corn kernels. It all gets tossed up with a limey-cumin dressing to make a great salad or side dish, as the title says. I followed Dorie’s suggestion to scoop it up with tortilla chips. Makes me almost want to watch a rodeo.

For the recipe, see Everyday Dorie by Dorie Greenspan, and head over to Cook the Book Fridays to see all of our “caviars” this week.

  1. It is a fun name, and it looks really delicious!

  2. Loving your picture! This was a hit over here as well!

  3. I have made a salad with a combination of black beans, corns and tomatoes for many years. No matter how you tweak it, a pile of tortilla chips sound good to me.

  4. It is a pretty salad and I can see it with black beans (or maybe even adzuki) to give it a touch of contrast! I was bummed I didn’t have any corn to add to the salad as I thought it’d be visually appealing and super tasty. In any case, looks great, especially with the tortilla chips!

  5. Yea ha rodeo. I am glad you used what beans you had. I had black beans so that is what I used.
