Summer Peach Cowboy Caviar Recipe
I made this Summer Peach Cowboy Caviar for my family the week of 4th of July. My husband was pretty impressed with how tasty the peaches were mixed with blackeyed peas and other yummy ingredients. I was looking to make up a peach cobbler but heck it was sunny outside and fresh dip was just calling my name.
How to make a tasty Peach Cowboy Caviar
If we are going to talk Peach Cowboy Caviar facts, you have to have a good sweet ripe peach. However, if you peaches are not perfect, grab a honeydew melon and add a half cup to sweeten up those peaches.
Personally, I have never met a peach that I did not like, but that does not mean they are all perfectly sweet!
Tips For Making Summer Peach Cowboy Caviar
- Use the freshest ingredients possible and organic when you can.
- It is very important to keep the cuts small enough for your fresh veggies to make the Peach Cowboy Caviar a dip and not a chunky bean salad. Y’all, no one wants a big chunk of onion on their tortilla chip!
- If you are not super skilled with a chef knife try one os these handy choppers. They work great for onions, peppers, and even strawberries and tomatoes!\
- If you are on team chef knife, here is my all- time favorite.
