Cowboy Caviar

A spin on cowboy caviar

As usual, these are estimates. I measure very little when I cook. I think it’s best to taste often and get used to seasoning well. My one lime might have way more juice or flavor than your one so adjust as needed.

This usually has black beans and corn but I had neither. I’d add either of those if I had them, maybe. This turned out great and we all had multiple servings! I’d also add a little finely minced de-seeded jalapeño or poblano if I had it next time 👌🏼

In a large bowl make the dressing:
1/4 cup olive oil
Splash of apple cider vinegar
Zest and juice of a lime
1 Tbsp honey
1-3 cloves of garlic, crushed
S&P to taste
Whisk well

Add in:
1 large shallot or medium red onion, minced
2 cups cooked chickpeas
1 red bell pepper, diced
1-2 cups chopped cilantro or cilantro microgreens
2-3 semi firm avocados, diced
If you like more greens, I added in a few cups of chopped arugula 💪🏼

Gently toss and serve. We had this as a side to our enchiladas. I’ll have to make a separate post for those and my sauce. To be continued …
