Cowboy Caviar Recipe

Ok. I. Can. Not. Wait. to try this. The name alone just gets my southern girl taste buds a-tingling. lol. I found the recipe on FB by way of Centsless Meals which led me to (<see the full article there). The website touts it as a “fresh, simple dip that can be thrown together in 15 minutes”. Simple. Vegan. Delicious. Cool name. I’m in.
