Texas Caviar by My Baking Heart

Happy 2012, my lovely readers! This month on ‘Live Sigma Kappa’, I’m sharing Momma G’s recipe for ‘Texas Caviar’… a dish that’s always on our table at New Year’s. Not only do we get our lucky peas in for January 1st, but it’s super-tasty to boot! Definitely one that you can serve year-round, as well – parties, get-togethers, picnics, showers, it works for them all! ūüôā

Texas Caviar

Yield: 6-8 servings


  • 1 (15 oz) cans black-eyed peas, drained & rinsed
  • 1 (15 oz) petite diced tomatoes, drained
  • 3/4 c green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 md red onion, chopped
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 1‚ĀĄ4 c cilantro, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 (8 oz) bottle fat-free Italian salad dressing


In a large bowl, combine the peas, tomatoes, bell pepper, onions, cilantro and garlic. Pour salad dressing over pea mixture and, with a spatula, stir gently to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 12 to 24 hours.


Let me know what you think and here’s to a great week ahead!
