I live in Texas now, but did not grow up here. So I had never even heard of Texas caviar until recently. Texas caviar is nothing like caviar at all. In fact, Texas caviar is a bean salad. You can also use chips to scoop it up like salsa. It’s very yummy! This healthy salad could easily become a staple at summer parties! We all need more healthy salad recipes right? This is healthy salad is perfect for summer. You don’t even need to heat up your kitchen making it.
We used dried beans to make this recipe, but you can also use canned if you like. The measurements in the recipe are taken after the beans were soaked and cooked. I hope you enjoy this healthy recipe as much as we did.
Yields 5-6 cups

Normally, jalapeno is added to Texas caviar. I didn't add it because I am a huge wimp when it comes to spicy food. Feel free to add some in if you like!
