Tuna Cowboy Caviar

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Engrossed

Created for the Dining on a Dollar contest. A tasty, healthy, jazzed up cowboy caviar. Full of fiber and protein. Good as a dip, over lettuce, by it's self or wrapped in a tortilla with cheese for a filling lunch. You can easily turn up the heat. Servings depend on if it's a main course or appetizer.

I really enjoyed this recipe! Really nice mix of ingredients, and the dressing did jazz it up! I did use cubed cream cheese as suggested, and found that it went really well with everything.
