"WOW!This is just YUMMY!I did not think I would like this recipe but,boy was I wrong!!!Wonderful Stuff,I think the cilantro makes it great!!!Just the right amount of heat from the tomatos too."
"OUTSTANDING--I do believe this is the best recipe I have ever made. Everyone raves about it. The recipe is certainly easy to make, but does require a lot of vegetable chopping. All my family and guests raved about it. My daughter-in-law likes things extremely hot, so she added red pepper flakes to hers. You might want to consider red or yellow peppers which have far more nutrition and taste better. Green peppers are simply unripe pepppers."
"A BIG hit at the Oyster Roast last night! I substituted Rotel tomatoes with Cilantro, as I didn't have any fresh cilantro (don't really like it either). I used Kraft House Italian dressing (more emulsified than Zesty Italian), and added about 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese. So easy and delicious!"
"This was great! The blend of flavors are wonderful! My 12 year old son loved it-all those chopped vegetables and he ate it-and loved it! Wow!!!! I did add some crushed red pepper flaked to spice it up-wonderful!"
"Sheesh, how easy is this?!?! What a great "fun" recipe. From the other reviews I too used 1 red, 1 yellow and 1 green bell pepper (they were small) more for looks then to change the taste and as I also adore hot & spicy, I diced up some jalapenos and oh my gosh...totaly awesome! From a Texan, thanks!"
"Texas Caviar is one of my new favorite recipes, so I'm going to give this version a try! I love adding diced avacado to the mix, too!"
"Fantastic! I loved this recipe. I like really spicy food so I added fresh jalapenos and I substituted one of the green peppers for a red pepper! The cliantro gave it such a nice flavor. Thanks Geema!"
"Really great for pot-lucks. I substituted olive oil, red wine vinegar, and salt to taste for the Italian dressing. Also I served just after mixing and it was all eaten."
"Fantastic! I made this for a family function once and now it is requested for all of them, and the recipe, too. I like it with green peppers, but even better with red or yellow."
"Made this for a New Year's Day Party and everyone loved it! Thanks for helping us start off the year right! (I added some feta cheese and it really blended well!)"
"I made this for a pot luck at work. It was a big hit. I added a small can of white peg corn for color. I had to copy the recipe for everyone."
"I used black beans instead of the black eyed peas = more southwestern. I also added a little salt too. This was a hit at our Bunco night!"
"This was just "ok" in my book. My mom LOVED it, but I still had half a bowl left when I served it. Maybe just not for my tastes, although I love all the ingredients. The only thing I can think of that might have made it better for me is some garlic. Might consider trying again with that addition. "
"I feel so bad only giving this three stars but we didn't even finish the half batch I made. We thought it needed some salt but even after that addition we weren't a fan of the mixture. Not sure why we didn't enjoy this as we like every ingredient but I guess not in this combination. Obviously a lot of other people love this recipe so I think it's still worth trying."
"Can I give this a 10. This is so good and easy. My DH ate half the bowl before I got it in the fridge. Thanks for the recipe."
"Very good recipe. I was asked for the recipe by my guests. There isn't any higher compliment than that! This is the first 'Texas Caviar' recipe I've tried, and it's a keeper!"
"I like most versions of Texas Caviar but this is by far the best in my opinion. I used fat free dressing and it tasted just as good as the "real" thing."
"This is soooooo good! I made it for a family get-together and they ate it right up. My sister got the recipe from me and took it to a dinner with her in-laws and they raved about it too. Made it just like the recipe only used red peppers instead of green. YUM!!!"
