Because Theresa from LaPaz asked

Here is the recipe for Texas Caviar that we served when Theresa and gang visited. Theresa asked for it, and I promised I'd post it. This is my sister-in-law Amy's variation on the recipe. Atticus disputes her on the cilantro quantities, but I'm with Amy.

Texas Caviar

1 can black beans, rinsed
1 can black eyed peas, rinsed
1 ginormous bunch cilantro
2 tomatoes diced
1/2 small red onion
2 or more cloves garlic, minced
1/2 small bag frozen corn
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup oil (doesn't have to be EVOO, just good old canola)

Mix and let "marry" for two hours or more. Or, according to Amy, "if you're an Edmisten, start eating immediately upon completion."

Enjoy it, Theresa!

Looks delectable! I'm with you and Amy, Karen, the more cilantro the happier I am. My dh, on the otherhand, shares Atticus' opinion.

Sounds delish.

I make something similar without blackeyed peas and garlic and substituting lime juice for the vinegar. oh and avocodos are a good addition too.

I'm finally getting around to making this tonight. I don't have black-eyed peas so I'll have to substitute something.I think I have some cannelini--that should do it.I just hope it turns out half as good as yours which, btw, you know that container that you sent along with us? I ate it ALL and did not share a bit!LOL!
