Cowboy Caviar (aka: The most delicious salsa you'll ever eat!)

Picture from google images
Camille brought this to a party and EVERYONE wanted the recipe because it was so delicious! (So thank you Camille!)

2 Tbs red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp olive oil (I did a little more)
1 clove minced garlic (Camille uses the garlic stuff out of a jar and I used garlic powder, whatever garlic-y stuff you have will do)
salt and pepper to taste
1 large avocado
1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)
1 can corn (drained and rinsed)
2/3 c. green onion (some pictures on google images had red onions, I'm sure either would be good)
2/3 c. cilantro
1/2 lb tomatoes

Cut up all ingredients and stir in a bowl. Let sit for a few hours to blend flavors and serve with tortilla chips. Then try not to eat that whole bowl in one sitting by yourself!

Easy-peasy and oh so delicious!

* I didn't really measure too much but next time I'll do more tomatoes and less avocados (Klay doesn't like them or I would do twice as many). Add more of what you like and less of what you don't, it will still be like heaven in your mouth. 
* I couldn't stop eating it right after I made it and it was great fresh but was definitely better today after all the flavors had meshed together over night. Camille said she usually lets it sit for a few hours before eating. (If you can wait that long!)
* It makes a lot! I took half to my friend because I knew the avocados would go brown before we could eat it all.
* It did taste better today but looked really gross with all the brown avocados. Next time I'm going to leave them out and add them right before I eat it so they are nice and fresh.

  1. That's a good idea to leave the avocados out until last. I'm so glad you liked it!
