Cowboy Caviar

Well I have been making this for years and I just called it Bean Salsa,,,but apparently it has a name,,,"Cowboy Caviar",,,,who knew!,,,This is a guilt-free snack I serve with Tostitos Multigrain Scoops,,,,,You can store this in the fridge for days,,,If it lasts that long!,,,,You use 3 cans of beans for this Black, Pinto and Cannellini,,,,but you can use what you like,,,garbanzo would be good in here also or Kidney or black eyed peas,,,I also used pimentos from the jar but you could also finely dice a red pepper.....you could also add diced tomatoes if you like and if you are eating quickly you can add avocado before serving,,,Have fun with it,,,here is what I did,,,Enjoy!

1/2 Cup vegetable oil
3/4 Cup apple cider vinegar
