What To Do With Black-eyed Peas??

This "Cowboy Caviar" comes from our friends the Adams family. They brought it to a get together our little FHE (Family Home Evening) group was having and it was such a hit! Everyone begged for the recipe and they were nice enough to share. It is a healthy alternative to fattier cream dips and can be a welcome change to salsa. In fact, Michael took it to his work's potluck today.

Adam's Family Cowboy Caviar

2 cans black-eyed peas, drained
1 can of "Shoepeg" corn - it is canned white corn (Green Giant makes it), drained
1 bunch cilantro, chopped
1 bunch of green onions, chopped
1 tsp finely chopped garlic
1 C cherry tomatoes (or any tomatoes) chopped
3-4 avocados chopped

1/2 to 3/4 C olive oil & vinegar salad dressing (or any other vinaigrette/Italian you enjoy)
salt & pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and serve with tortilla chips.

Hope you enjoy this one - we sure do! Thanks Adams family!!

Oh yay! I'm always trying to whip up something good like this... sometimes it comes out okay and sometimes not as okay. So now I'll have something that will be good EVERY time! Pretty easy, too! (I'm all about the easy)
