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. The dressing has a bit of a hint of vinegar, with sweetness to offset it.

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.

This recipe was inspired by a recipe from Kimberly Schlapman.

4-Bean Salad

I love a good bean salad. But, this isn’t a good bean salad… it’s an amazing bean salad. The pickle sauce is so tasty, a combination of sweet and vinegar. I could probably just sit down and drink a glass of it by itself. The sauce is what makes this 4-bean salad something special.

A Special Salad

If I’d leave out the peppadew peppers this would be an above-average salad, and I’d be happy to take it to any family picnic or get-together. But, with the peppadew peppers it becomes something that everyone will talk about. They bring just the right amount of heat. They’re my new most-favorite thing. Perfect on hamburgers, hot dogs, in salads, on sandwiches, you name it.

4-Bean Relish (Salad)

If you can’t find peppadews, use the hot and sweet cherry peppers you can find at Trader Joe’s. If you don’t have a Trader Joe’s nearby, you can substitute chopped roasted red pepper, but you’ll want to add a spicy hot sauce to add some kick. This 4-bean salad needs some kick.

Also try my 7-bean salad. Are 7 beans better than 4? You be the judge!
