Cowboy Caviar

  • Yesterday, I made cowboy caviar. [†] 

    Which made me think: "Cowboy caviar?"  Maybe it's another sneaky rural deception about ingredients, like "mountain oysters"?  "Could it be fried ovaries from cows or ewes?"

    But wait !   Isn't V.C.R. up in the urban sprawl of the (U.S.) Northeast, far from farms?   Maybe such body parts are for sale by ethnic butchers?   And how would such a dish be considered plant based?

    Well !   Ixquick--certainly not google--is my friend:

        <https://www.ixquick.com/do/search?q=%22cowboy+caviar%22+%2Brecipe+%2Bvegan&lui=english>,

    which encodes the same search as typing the following into the Ixquick search-box:

        "cowboy caviar" +recipe +vegan

    Yielding, i.a. :

        <https://www.plantbasedrecipe.com/articles/cowboy-caviar-a-savory-sweet-and-spicy-vegan-bean-salad/>.

    It's somewhat like making the ingredients of a spiced-up black-bean soup (frijoles negros) into an uncooked salad.

    The recipe above is at least somewhat distinctive, because to its credit, it doesn't use commercial "Italian dressing", whose brands are typically adulterated with high-fructose corn syrup, especially in those varieties sold with the deceptive marketing label "low fat".  But I am surprised that the recipe above has no oil [÷] in its dressing.

    -------
    Note ÷: For salads, oil would customarily be mixed 3:1 or 4:1 (or thereabouts) to vinegar.

  • Far from farms?  

    We r farmers.  Surrounded by urban sprawl by mostly liberal City slicker novus ordites.  
    And tradcats are urban too and are most likely liberal. 

    And we grow vegetables and eat venison and turkey, chicken. But our neighbors are dairy farmers and cattle ranchers.  

    Look this up.  Just ate scrapple.  
    Yum.  Alligator tacos.

  • I didn't use this version.  

    I made mine with bell peppers, sweet corn, apple cider vinegar...
    (No sugar or stevia ).

    Bzzz!  Off topic!  And presumptiously imperative while being so: A charming combination.

    Any farmer certainly ought to understand that "scrapple"--plus the related livermush and liverwurst--aren't even close to belonging in this topic.  Instead, they belong in some other topic that's not focused on "plant-based" recipes; e.g., the oecumenical topic "Food gifts for taqiyya-spouting Muslims" might be an outstanding choice.
