Whether it is the start of the year that has renewed your commitment to eating healthier or if you are one of the good ones that stays on the wagon throughout the year, new easy healthy recipes are always a welcome treat. This Cowboy Caviar recipe has been a favorite of ours for over five years; a friend of mine made it for us and we were instantly hooked. It tastes delicious on its own and goes great over salads or with chips as a caviar dip.
This Cowboy Caviar recipe is dairy free, easy to make, and so healthy! It can be eaten alone, on top of salads, or with chips and is an easy favorite!
This recipe includes lots of fresh vegetables which makes it delicious on all kinds of chips, crackers, and even salad or over some whole grain rice. I love these serving dishes and occasionally I’ll use one like this if we’re headed to a party and I want to give everyone some options!
The best tip I can give you for making this recipe is to chop the vegetables nice and small. And while it takes some time to chop them, you receive the reward as you enjoy it on everything.
I usually add less avocado if I know we will not finish the entire recipe in one day and add more to it each day so the avocado is fresh and looks beautiful in the mix of veggies.
