OH the joys this dish has brought my family and kids! First, the kids are eating beans and veggies and they love it! Second, it’s such a quick, easy, put-it-together-last-minute kinda dish. Have it as a main with corn chips (read the labels!) or as a side salad.
Don’t know where the term ‘Cowboy Caviar’ came from, but it’s so good!
Note: because of time constraints of working, having kids and everything else…I do use canned black beans and canned corn. The ‘better’ way of preparing this dish would be to soak the black beans over night and cook the corn….but really, I don’t have time for that at the moment! Sometimes you just need a quick (but healthy, tasty, delicious!!!!) dish to whip up!
1 can black beans
1 can sweet corn
1/2 red onion, diced really small
2 tomatoes, diced
1-2 avocados, chopped
1-2 tbsp chopped coriander
Put all ingredients in a bowl and gently mix together.
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
3-4 tbsp lime juice
2 tbsp oil
Combine the dressing together and pour over the bean mixture.
Serve at room temp with tortilla chips or as a side to smoked paprika chicken or fish (shown above).
