Another recipe.....

I sure do wish I could take credit for this recipe because it is terrific. A girl that I work with and have known for about 25 years gave it to me and since her name is Sandy, I will call this

SANDY'S TEXAS CAVIAR

1 15/16 oz can of pinto beans
1 15/16 oz can of black eyed peas
1 15/16 oz can of whole kernel WHITE corn
1 small green pepper, cleaned and finely chopped
1 cup of finely chopped red onion
4 stalks of finely chopped celery
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper

Drain the beans, peas and corn. Add the green pepper, red onion, salt and pepper.

SAUCE

1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup of vegetable/canola oil
1/2 cup of Splenda/sugar mix (if you choose not to use Splenda mixture, use 3/4 cup sugar instead)

Bring to a boil the vinegar, oil and sugar. Let cool in the refrigerator and pour over the above vegetables. Serve with Tostitos scoop chips. Enjoy!

This recipe is absolutely wonderful and very addicting. One of the best things about it is that it's good for you! How about that!

Sounds divine. My mouth is absolutely watering.

Be well, Val. I'd say you'd have to be, to have recipes like this to enjoy!

Good except for the splenda. It gives me one hell of a belly ache. Too bad since I am diabetic...
