This Easy Cowboy Caviar recipe comes from my mother in law Lynda. She invited us over for a pool party for Ryan's birthday ( he just turned 15) and we grilled hot dogs, hot links and pork chops.

 She made baked beans , 7 layer dip and this Easy Cowboy Caviar as a side dish. It's kind of like my husband's black bean salsa recipe except it has red bell peppers and black eyed peas.

I love this recipe because it's light and it's easy to make. It can be used as appetizer, topped on a salad or as a side dish. It's also one of those recipes you can edit and add your own ingredients if you don't like what I have chosen.

  4. Next thing to do is dice up the onion and add it to the bowl
  5. Now dice up your tomato over the bowl so any juice will drip into the bowl

  8. Now mix everything up
