On Christmas night, Prince Charming told my 11 year old brother that Texas Caviar is catfish eggs. Ha! This stuff is way better than (ugh!) catfish eggs would be. I could totally eat this Texas Caviar like a salad – with a fork!
I researched several Texas Caviar recipes and even wrote ingredients on my grocery list, but somehow a few ingredients never made it into the grocery cart. So, I made up my own recipe.
- 1/2 large red onion, chopped
- 1 yellow bell pepper chopped
- 1 can sweet corn, drained
- 2 cans black eyed peas, drained
- 1 can Rotel, drained
- 1 T. minced garlic
- 3/4 cup balsamic vinaigrette
- 1/2 t. cumin
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- 1 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
Mix onion, bell pepper, corn, peas, Rotel and garlic. Pour vinaigrette over and mix. Add cumin, salt and pepper. Mix well. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Add cilantro right before serving. Serve with tortilla chips (or forks. Ha!). Enjoy!
