  • 1 orange bell pepper seeded and diced (1½ cups)
  • 1 jalapeño seeded and finely diced
  • ½ cup red onion finely diced (½ medium-sized red onion)
  • ½ cup sweet yellow onion finely diced (½ medium-sized onion)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh garlic minced

  • ¼ cup olive oil extra virgin
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil extra virgin

PRO TIP: If you don't feel like chopping all those fresh veggies, canned vegetables work just as well in this easy cowboy caviar.
