Cowboy Caviar or Chuck’s Party Salsa

Cowboy Caviar or Chuck’s Party Salsa – Whatever you call it, this party food is one of my favorites! The cul-de-sac in our neighborhood had a get together this weekend. The invitation said to bring either a dessert or side item. The neighbor I went with was brining dessert, so I went with a side item.

I had a hard time deciding because it’s been so hot out, I wanted something that would keep well. I went through cookbook after cookbook and then Ta-Da, there was the recipe for Chuck’s Party Salsa from my aunt Margaret. Yay! I’ve made this a number of times and every time, it’s great.

My neighbor said that they call it Cowboy Caviar and what a great name for it! I like this salsa because it’s not soupy and the lime gives it such great flavor. It’s a perfect summer treat!!
