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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Toss salad ingredients together (except avocado, until just before serving. You can cover avocado with a layer of dressed salad to keep it from browning or just add it as you eat it.).
  2. Whisk dressing ingredients together and stir into salad.
  3. Optional: You can stir in shredded cheddar cheese and/or cubed cream cheese.
  4. Serve as a dip with tortilla chips, over lettuce as a salad, wrapped in a tortilla with cheese or on it's own as a filling lunch.

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.
