Texas Caviar or Black Eyed Pea and Corn Salsa

Texas Caviar or Black Bean and Corn Sals


  • 1 (15 ounce) can white corn, drained 
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black eyed peas, OR black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 Roma tomatoes diced
  • 1 bunch finely chopped cilantro
  • 2 Tablespoons small red onion, finely chopped (optional)
  • 1/2 green or orange pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 avocado – peeled, pitted, and diced
  • A dash of Lawry’s or Johnny’s seasoning salt
  • A few shakes of black pepper
  • 3 Tablespoons Zesty Italian or House Italian Dressing 

I LOVE this recipe. I can sit and eat the whole thing myself in a few days. It is so colorful, healthy and yummy on wheat crackers or on Tostitos chips. Or on these new Pretzel Crackers. They get gobbled up REAL FAST! 

I want to make a batch of it today in honor of Pioneer Day! In Utah July 24th is a day to celebrate the trek the pioneers made across the country to help build the West. 

Happy Pioneer Day! 

Texas Caviar or Black Eyed Peas  and Corn Salsa! It’s SOOOOOO  yummy!
