Georgia Caviar

A salad doesn’t have to be complicated to be great. A few fresh ingredients, a few canned, with a great dressing, and you have a big batch of colorful salad that is sure to impress at your next family gathering. This Georgia caviar (sounds fancier than ‘some beans with pepper and onion and black-eyed-peas salad’) has a great crispy fresh crunch, sweetness from corn, and that great black-eyed pea flavor.

Georgia Caviar

I grew up on black-eyed peas and I still love them. My dad is (apparently) required to have them at every meal. He grew up on them too.
I can’t say any more about this Georgia caviar. I just keep looking at the picture and thinking, ‘dang, that was a great salad’. It really was. So refreshing.

Also try my Cowboy caviar, Buffalo Cowboy caviar and summer corn salad recipes.
