With as many variations as salsa itself, this healthy Texas Caviar Dip (also called Black Eyed Pea Salsa or Cowboy Caviar) is considered a classic Lone Star State recipe. For some, it’s not complete without bottled Italian dressing; however we decided to make it a bit more healthy with raw apple cider vinegar, cumin, jalapeños, organic corn, garlic and red onion. It’s still just as tasty and a recipe that will be requested over and over. And feel free to use the left-overs of Texas Caviar Dip for scrambled eggs or as a spicy topping on other vegetable dishes.
