Texas Cavier – The Recipe Redux


Spring is in full swing and summer is just around the corner and I had a lot of fun with this month’s Recipe Redux. I was recently invited to join and am ecstatic to be part of such a cool community! I really wanted to think of something fun and creative for my induction and I think this will keep the creativity flowing.

Small Plates For Sunny Days
Small bites are perfect for trying many different tastes. Take tapas style eating outside for al fresco dining or a simple picnic. Or maybe you’re serving small bites at a bridal or baby shower or a graduation party. Show us your healthy take on small plates and finger foods. 
I was at a picnic last weekend and someone made a dish similar to this which inspired me to make my own version of it. And I had to bring something to book club. My book club girlies are forever my blog recipe guinea pigs.
They don’t seem to mind.
This dish is perfect summertime fun food! It’s a great snack, appetizer and fabulous potluck accompaniment. I have a feeling this will be making several appearances in my summer and potluck menu this summer.
Texas Caviar
1 cup of cooked black beans
1/2 of a bell pepper, diced (I used orange)
1 medium-sized tomato, diced
1/2 of an avocado, diced
3/4 cup of fresh or frozen corn
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 handful of fresh parsley, minced
2 tbsp of olive oil
the juice of a lime
1/4 tsp each of sea salt & black pepper
Throw all of the ingredients into a bowl and combine.
I think it could actually work as a stand alone salad. It would also go great with crackers or chips – I served mine on sliced cucumber. Sunny was my official cucumber taste tester.
What small bites have you been enjoying lately?

  1. That looks really fresh and tasty, a great little snack. I love serving things on cucumber slices as well. Good Sunny, for making sure the cucumber was suitable. 😉

  2. Yay, that’s so cool you are part of Recipe Redux now Kimmy! Your Texas caviar bites are so creative, I love these! I’m a Reduxer too, but I missed this month’s linkup due to being away from home and not being prepared with a scheduled post before I left :( I can’t wait to see your Redux post next month <3

    1. Would you believe I was SO EXCITED to post for them that I worked really hard on creating the recipe, taking good pictures, making sure I added the linky to my post… and then I forgot to link up. D’oh! Ah well. Next month. I can’t wait to see your recipe next month. We can be Redux buddies =)

  3. This appetizer is so delectable! I would love to make these for my next book club meeting. Thank you for sharing your healthy and delicious Texas Cavier recipe with us at the Plant-Based Potluck Party. I’m pinning and sharing.
