    Ducky's Note:

    Had this at a potluck picnic and it was wonderful. I sought out the woman who made it and got the recipe. The secret is to drain it before serving so it isn't swimming in dressing. Serve with tortilla chips. I use cider vinegar but feel free to use white, red, raspberry or any other flavor of your choice. Can sizes are given for the current commonly available sizes in the US. Adjust ingredients for your taste. Times do not include marinate or draining time.

      This was super! I had fresh Hatch peppers on hand so I threw in some of those & also a generous dose of cilantro. One helping remained after the Labor Day potluck & I ate that for a bedtime snack ;-)

      I made this yesterday and served it today for Mother's Day. Only changed a small thing. I don't like black-eyed peas so I replaced with Navy beans. The dressing was perfect. It says use favorite vinegar, I used garlic and red wine. It was wonderful. Thank you for sharing.

      WOW!!! I made this as an appetizer for our daughter-in-law's birthday dinner. I made it exactly as the recipe reads. Everyone raved! I served it with 3 different flavors of pita chips and Tostitos scoops. The scoops were by far the best choice. What a great alternative to traditional dips and spreads loaded with high fat dairy and meat ingredients! Yum!!!!
