a long time ago I made something called louisanna cavia. I remember the recipe had black beans, black eyed peas, white shoepeg corn, but I can't find the recipe does anyone have one they would like to share?

Mine is called Oklahoma caviar

2 cans black eyed peas
1 can black beans (optional can use 3 cans black eyed peas)
3 tomatoes chopped (when I can't get really good tomatoes I use 2 cans roasted diced)
1 onion chopped
1 can white hominy (some folks use whole corn but we prefer the hominy)
1-2 green peppers chopped (I only use 1)
8 oz. Italian salad dressing

Drain and rinse beans, peas and hominy(corn)
Add other ingredients and stir well
Refrigerate 2 hours min. to combine flavors
Serve with tortilla chips

There is apparently a fine line between what some would refer to as caviar and others salsa

It's a play on words/visuals. The Italian dressing coats the black-eyed peas and black beans and makes them look shiny, like caviar.

It's called "Cowboy Caviar" here in the upper midwest.

The cajun caviar I know is actual roe from the bowfin.

There are a billion recipes for this dish but you'll find more recipes online by attributing it to Texas
