Who doesn't love some caviar? Texas Caviar that is! It is such a simple dish to prepare but the flavors are so good. There are a million different (yet similar) recipes out there for this great dip, I chose an easy recipe for our version and served it up with some tortilla chips for dipping. As you can see I go for a rough chop on my veges, I love chunks of flavor in my food -I'm not a small dice kinda girl. I chose this particular recipe because of the addition of the avocado. I'm glad I did - we all really enjoyed this version so I am happy to share it with all of you. So if your looking for a healthier dip option I definitely recommend giving Texas Caviar a try...Enjoy!
