Texas Caviar

"I saw this recipe in the Tyler newspaper and I don't even like blackeye peas and thought this might be good. Mentioned it to a friend and she had already made it the day before and loved it. Made last night and it is awesome (this coming from someone who hates New Years Day because I hold to the southern tradition of pork, greens and blackeye peas, which I gag on. But this is wonderful. Comes from Erica Cady 2007 Blackeyed Pea Festival in Athens, Texas. This is really better the longer and longer you let it sit."

    I made this recipe for my college graduation party and it was WONDERFUL! My son was at first upset that I did not use a recipe that he had, but I liked the sound of this one with the avocado. I doubled the recipe right off the bat and I am glad that I did! He stopped complaining after he tasted it. Thanks for posting it!

    I made this for Pick A Chef Spring 2009. It's a great combination of vegetables. It tastes fresh, and it does in fact improve in taste after it sits in the refrigerator. We've been enjoying it all week!


I am a transplanted Texan. I have lived in different states as my father was in the service but basically grew up in Louisiana. So, I classify myself as a Texan, Cajun and Greek with all different taste in food. I've been married to my wonderful husband for 21 years and for many of those years he did most of the cooking with me doing the Holiday meals. We moved so I'm now only 4 minutes from work and I have much more time to experiment in the kitchen. My son and husband like to give their opinions on my attempts at new dishes.
