This is my absolute favorite version of Mississippi Caviar! The only suggestion I have is to use the Zesty version of italian dressing mix. I had to use it once because I didn't have the regular and found that everyone in my family liked it better.
This is one of those recipes that everyone requests when I'm invited for a gathering or cookout. I serve it with corn chips, but some people I know just eat it as a side dish salad. YUM!!
