This ‘Texas Caviar with Grilled Pineapple Salsa’ is one of my favorite summer party or bbq recipes. It’s more of a ‘mix-in’ kind of a recipe that’s perfect to feed a large crowd and absolutely easy to make (not much chopping or assembling needed). The only thing you have to do is grill the pineapple to adds a sweet twist to this classic American appetizer. It was during my first trip to Texas (almost 12 yrs back) that I tasted the famous ‘Texas Caviar which is also called Cowboy Caviar’ at my office BBQ party in Dallas. The name itself was very intriguing and I was literally expecting a large serving of caviar (fish roe) with some sort of mix. But to my surprise, it was actually a mixed beans + veggies salsa served with chips and were absolutely addicting! I also came to know that the dish originated from Texas in 1940 and has ever been a favorite in parties. It’s actually a very healthy mix of ingredients. So I came back with the recipe of ‘Texas Caviar’ and have been making it ever since.I’ve been making the recipe as is for many years till 2 years back when I decided to add a twist of grilled pineapple salsa to it. All I did was grill some sliced pineapple for 2 minutes (I literally did this on my stovetop grill), chopped and mixed some leftover pickled jalapeno. Then I added that chopped grilled pineapple salsa to the Texas Caviar recipe and my ‘Texas Caviar with Grilled Pineapple Salsa’ was invented 🙂 a.nd was an instant hit with family and friend. Who doesn’t love that sweet-spicy-salty mix that’s actually pretty healthy to munch on. So we usually make double the batch at all our events. I also added a vinaigrette, which is very easy and made of basic everyday ingredients like oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper. If you want any additional flavoring, you can add some celery salt and lime juice to it. Since it’s a party/picnic recipe, I wanted to make it even easier hence, I added RO*TEL® Original Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies and Hunt’s® Natural Diced Tomatoes to it (which I usually have stocked in the kitchen pantry from Walmart). All you have to do now, is rinse some canned beans, chop onions, bell peppers and add the tomatoes from the cans and you are ready with the ‘Texas Caviar with Grilled Pineapple Salsa’ within minutes. So go ahead and make the caviar for your next party or picnic and you can find more food inspiration using RO*TEL® and Hunt’s® Here <———————–
