Texas Caviar with Shrimp for a Summer Potluck or Movie Night
This Texas Caviar (a.k.a. Cowboy Caviar) is loaded with black-eyed peas, black beans, corn, tomatoes, jalapeno, avocado, and more. We put a twist on it by adding cooked shrimp!
Toss it with a tangy lime dressing for a healthy and easy dip, salad, or side dish that everyone will love. You can make it in advance in just 30 minutes!
For the Texas Caviar:
Black eye peas Black beans Yellow corn Red onion Tomatoes Jalapeno Bell peppers Green onions Avocado Shrimp
For the dip/salad: In a large mixing bowl, mix all the ingredients for the Texas caviar dip, cover, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours.
Chill the avocado (whole and unpeeled) for at least one hour. Take off the pit and slice to add to the salad right before serving to prevent turning brown!
If you want, add cooked shrimp. Or heat a dash of oil in a no-stick skillet over medium heat, season the shrimp with salt and pepper, and sauté until just becomes pinkish.
For the cowboy caviar dressing: In another bowl or Mason jar, whisk in/shake well all the ingredients for the dressing. Refrigerate covered.
