Here’s a new twist on a classic bean salad!
Cowboy Caviar, a simple bean salad combining beans, fresh veggies and a light and zesty vinaigrette, is an old favorite of ours. With colorful, fresh ingredients and bright flavors, this mix goes great as an appetizer or party starter with chips as a dip or as an easy, healthy and delicious salad great for plan-ahead lunches.
Most cowboy caviar recipes call for black-eyed peas, but with the release of our new Ultimate Four Bean Mix, this recipe deserved an Ultimate Update. The perfect mix of great northern beans, black beans, kidney beans and pinto beans gives each bite different flavors and textures. Every bite is a party!
Dressed in a simple cilantro and jalapeno vinaigrette, our cowboy caviar has a mild kick and sweetness without all the sugar of a traditional recipe. It is the perfect dressing and salad mixture to pair with chicken, burgers or pork from the grill at your next cookout or family gathering.
Don’t worry about doubling down on the portions either, this recipe is extremely versatile as leftovers! This bean mix goes great over lettuce or mixed greens as a topper for a regular salad or mixed into an omelet for a breakfast option.
Leftover salad and dressing will last for about a week in your refrigerator in airtight containers, so leftovers can also be a great lunch option for the coming week. But we wouldn’t count on there being any leftovers… it’s that good!
Cowboy Caviar is a colorful and fun bean appetizer for any party, especially in the spring or summer. Whether it is hummus, a spread or another similar style of bean mix, Randall Beans are the perfect party starter!
