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
Ixquick--certainly not google
--is my friend:
which encodes the same search as typing the following into the Ixquick search-box:
"cowboy caviar" +recipe +vegan
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.
