I fell in love with this amazingly addicting dip made by a friend of mine at a social gathering. I just had to have this zesty cowboy caviar dip recipe and immediately made it when I got home!

The key is Balsamic vinegar instead of the normal red wine vinegar you find in other cowboy caviar recipes. I could literally drink this stuff straight, it’s so yummy! It adds a zing that tastes so different from your normal Pico de gallo salsa.

This is a very simple recipe that you can add more and more ingredients to and it just gets better. I added black-eyed peas to this one making it more of a Cowboy Caviar version. Avocado, jalapenos, and pinto beans are some other great options to add. Here is our version of this great veggie dip!
