Like most Southerners I grew up with black eye peas but I have never tried them cold until I found this dish.
This Cowboy Caviar, sometimes called Texas Caviar, can be made with different ingredients, for instance, I have a friend that adds avocado to hers, sounds great, doesn’t it.
I choose to make it with some basic flavors that really bring out the black eye peas and added a seasoned and healthy olive oil dressing with herbs and plenty of salt and pepper.
This Cowboy Caviar can be served with chips or as a side dish, I know it goes great with BBQ. And I’m sure that’s the way most self-respecting Texas eat it!
Yeppers, we are partial to dishes that can be served with BBQ. Either way, enjoy, my Friends!
