Texas Caviar

For New Year’s Eve, Keith and I had a couple of friends over and one of the things I made was Texas Caviar. If you haven’t ever heard of it, it’s basically a bean salad that you can eat with tortilla chips.

Here’s what you do:
Drain and rinse 2 cans of black-eyed peas and 1 can of black beans. Then put them in a medium sized mixing bowl and add 1 can of corn (I used 2 cups of frozen corn).

Next, dice up 1 red and 1 green bell pepper and one purple onion (I used half of an onion I had in the fridge). Put that in the bowl with the beans.  Sprinkle it with cilantro and celery salt.

Pour in one whole bottle of Italian salad dressing (I used the wishbone brand of dressing).  Add salt and pepper to season it to taste.

Then let it set overnight or at least a few hours for all the flavors to mix together.  It’s super simple to make and everybody loves it!
