Texas Caviar { Recipe }

This weekend I was cooking up a storm for a special weekend for my oldest little girl. Part of the festivities included this yummy recipe for Texas Caviar. A combination of chopped veggies, black eyed peas and corn marinated in Italian dressing, this salsa is the perfect partner for corn chips. Hope you enjoy!

    Hi Christene,

    Thanks for this recipe! While letting it marinate is it outside refrigeration?
