Texas Caviar – Super Bowl Party Vinaigrette
This 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.
This recipe makes 5 cups of refreshing vinaigrette salad, to complement other party foods on the menu.
- 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
- Place all ingredients in a medium size bowl , and mix together.
- Cover and refrigerate for several hours, or overnight, so the flavors blend well.
I prefer to rinse the beans and corn, in a colander under running cold water (for a fresher look), instead of just draining them.
