Texas Caviar

TEXAS CAVIAR

2 cans of black-eyed peas, drain only one can
1 small finely diced onion
1 tomato, diced fine
2 avocados, cubed
1/2 can of black olives, cut part of them in half

Pour one small bottle of Catalina Dressing over this mixture and let it get good and cold in the refrigerator. This is so delicious. We also like to add diced fine jalapeño pepper to it, gives it a little fire. Serve with assorted crackers.

I make something similar--a sweet/sour vinaigrette, peas, red onion, diced green and red bell pepper, tomato, maybe jalapeno. I like to serve it as a side for a pulled pork BBQ dinner--or on New Year's Day to serve as the "peas" for good luck.

This sounds great to serve as a summer salad, too! Thanks!

It's my recipe too! lol I love this stuff - it is also good to use on top of a salad as it's the dressing "included". I make a vinaigrette versus the Catalina - and I include cilantro and sometimes good fresh corn kernels.

So you have been slipping in my back door too! Not only did you get the recipe...you got a copy of the variation page! Honestly...the lengths some people will go to for a prize winning recipe
