Healthy Texas Caviar (Vegan)

I live in Texas now, but did not grow up here.  So I had never even heard of Healthy 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.

Texas Caviar


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.

We filmed a short video of this recipe below.  For more videos, you can subscribe to my You Tube channel.

A super healthy recipe that you will love!



  1. Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
  2. I think the flavors get better as the salad sits in the fridge overnight.
  3. This should last about a week in the fridge. Enjoy!


Recipe Notes

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!

  1. We often use Hominy in ours in place of the corn (and avocado mixes in well also). I agree, it tastes even better the next day! :)
  2. Mmh, this sounds absolutely delicious. And that should say a lot coming from me as the odd vegetarian who doesn't like salad. At least not the piles of leafy greens - this one looks a lot better. Too bad black beans are an ingredient I happen upon once in a blue moon and black-eyed peas are non-existent around here.
        1. I live in Australia and I have only just in the last couple of weeks been able to get canned black beans at the local supermarket! I can get black eyed peas but have never used them before.
  3. As a newbie to Paleo I was wondering...this isn't something in our diet since it has beans, correct? Thanks for your help :)
      1. oh ok, gotcha! Thanks for your help ;)! It looks a lot like the "Fiesta Dip" we make, so YUMMY! Maybe we'll have a "cheat" day, lol
  4. This looks delish! Is there both red and green onion in the salad? In the picture it looks like green onion but the ingredient list says red......just wanted to double check. Thank you!!
    1. Thanks for catching that! My husband wrote the recipe and emailed it to me. I guess he forgot to add in the green onions he used. I will edit the post now.
    2. Yes! When my husband wrote down the recipe, he forgot to add in the green onions. It's been edited. Sorry for the confusion! :)
  5. We just love Texas Caviar...I haven't put in the green onion but I bet they would be yummie I bet the green onions a delicious in the caviar.
  6. I love Texas caviar but mine has always had sugar in it......trying to cut that out. I've typically eaten it with you have a recommendation on what to eat this with?
  7. I've been wanting to try this for weeks. I finally remembered to get the ingredients when I went to the store. So yummy!
