Texas Caviar

Now here's something you're going to LOVE! This will probably make me sound silly, because YOU have probably already heard of it ~ but a co-worker recently introduced me to a yummy little item called Texas Caviar

Oh . . . my . . . yummy . . . goodness!

It's so easy & so yummy ~ if you want a twist on your salsa or pico de gallo, try this . . . 

You will need:

~1 c. olive oil
~1 c. sugar (OR try Turbiano Sugar [Sugar in the Raw] or Sucanat)
~1/2 c. Bragg's apple cider vinegar
~1 c. celery
~1 small sweet, yellow onion
~1 jalapeno pepper, chopped (OR 12 oz jar)
~1 med. jar of pimentos
~1 c. black-eyes peas
~1 c. white shoepeg corn
~1 c. black beans
~Corn chips


1) Bring oil, sugar and vinegar to boil, stirring a couple of time
2) Set aside to cool
3) While this is cooling, chop up the celery, cilantro, onion and jalapeno
4) Drain pimento, black-eyed peas, corn and black beans.
5) Rinse peas, corn and beans
6) Mix all ingredients and let set overnight
7) Drain any liquid that has settled before serving

You can change things up a little and make it your own. Add some Quinoa to stretch it out and add a little body to it if you are having over several guests or taking it to a carry-in; also try chick peas or avocado. Serve with tortilla chips. OH MY! You may just need your very own bowl. :-P

Let me know how much you LOVE this!
