Texas Caviar – Super Bowl Party Vinaigrette

taxas-caviar-32This is a very simple, light, refreshing, and colorful party salad.
I received many compliments from my guests, especially the ladies, at our Super Bowl Party last year.   This vinaigrette also makes a great dish for office parties, barbecues, baby showers, and it is admired by my vegetarian friends.

Ingredients:

  • 1 can black eyed peas – drained
  • 1 can shoepeg corn – drained
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 2 Tbs. red wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbs. diced cilantro
  • 1/2 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 red pepper- diced
  • 1/2 green pepper – diced
  • 1 stalk celery – diced
  • Salt and pepper
  • Chives or scallions

Directions:

  1. Place all ingredients in a medium size bowl , and mix together.
  2. Cover and refrigerate for several hours, or overnight, so the flavors blend well.

This recipe makes 5 cups of  refreshing vinaigrette salad, to complement other party foods on the menu.

Tip.  I prefer to rinse the beans and corn, in a colander under running cold water (for a fresher look), instead of just draining them.
