Texas Cowboy Caviar

This past weekend my husband and I had my parents over for dinner. Our usual conversation about what to prepare came up and we decided to have a Mexican fiesta. You can’t go wrong with Mexican cuisine. We both enjoy cooking and discussed what we would create. My husband would grill fajita-style bell peppers and onions for taco-style fajitas and I would make a veggie side.

Who else is over rice? I love cauliflower rice, but I wanted extra veggies and protein. This Texas Cowboy Caviar hits the spot. You can enjoy it with chips or just have it as a side salad. It is a breeze to prepare and the leftovers are delicious. I have been topping this over mixed greens and adding a little salad dressing for a flavorful twist on the typical salad.

So try it out. It’s plant-based (vegan), gluten-free, dairy-free, and simply amazing for the taste buds!

Try it out and leave a comment telling me how you liked it. Enjoy!
