Cajun Caviar

Recipe by Leslie in Texas

This recipe came on a postcard in the mail from a group of realtors.I took it as an appetizer to a party and it was gobbled up!Make sure you have plenty of crusty French bread slices to serve with this and to mop up the yummy sauce!

This is really good. I followed your suggestion of spreading it on French bread and ended up eating most of it by myself, in one sitting!Thanks!
