A couple of years ago, I shared my Texas Caviar recipe with you here on the blog. Since then, it has become the recipe that I am most known for in all of my family. When we are invited to a potluck event, this is usually the item that I am asked to bring. Texas Caviar is another name for black bean salad. I usually keep the recipe about the same but sometimes switch it up based on what I have on hand. I decided to whip up this easy Salmon Texas Caviar recipe to share with you to make for the Big Game!

This time, I decided to use salmon in the recipe to make it different and incorporate some healthy fats and protein. Salmon is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. Food is the best source of omega-3 fatty acids as compared to supplements. Honestly, I struggle with getting enough omega-3s in my diet on a regular basis and salmon is a great source of it and easy to throw in this recipe.

So what's omega-3 good for anyways? Ask my 3 year old- she knows! She will tell you that it is good for your brain. That's the easiest way of saying it! Omega-3 plays a role in brain function, normal growth and development and may reduce the risk of heart disease. The American Heart Association recommends eating fish at least twice a week. It can also help to reduce inflammation and reduce risks of cancer and arthritis.

Salmon is also a great source of protein- good for your muscles as Adalyn would say. It is rich in vitamin B12, niacin, vitamin B6, selenium and other vitamins and minerals. I did not grow up eating a lot of fish but since Troy and I have been married, we have eaten salmon occasionally.

Salmon Texas Caviar is loaded with delicious salmon, corn, black beans, different colors of bell pepper, tomatoes, onion and a tangy vinaigrette with lime juice, vinegar, olive oil and Mexican spices. So, so delicious! Served with chips or it can be eaten plain as is as a salad.

For this recipe, I used Season Brand Blueback Red Salmon. This salmon is easy to use because it is in a can and already cooked and gave this recipe a delicious flavor. Make this for your next party and your guests are sure to enjoy it!
