      I first tried Texas Caviar while at my husband's family reunion in Austin during Thanksgiving last year. This recipe duplicated what my sister-in-law made for us perfectly, except she had added red onion. I used a medium shallot and also added some tobasco sauce, cumin, and a little chili powder to spice it up some to meet my family's desire for a spicier flavor. Everyone loved this recipe and couldn't stop eating it. I have had several requests for the recipe from guests who shared this delicious snack with us. I have also served this as a side dish with grilled chicken and as a relish on cheese quesadillas. I will make this recipe over and over again. Thanks for posting this terrific recipe!

      Super easy, put should have used zingier dressing. I thought I had some but had to make my own. Put everything together, didn't wait on tomatoes and cilantro.
