Dixie Caviar

There are so many versions of this recipe, and it really comes down to what you like. I'm putting measurements here, but I can honestly say I've never measured a thing for this. I just put it all together until it looks like I want it to. It tastes even better after sitting in the fridge overnight.

Dixie Caviar

-2 cans black-eyed peas, drained (or you can use a bag of frozen, thawed)
-1 can black beans, drained
-1 can hominy or shoepeg corn, drained
-2 tomatoes, diced
-1 small onion, diced
-3-4 green onions, diced
-2 jalapenos, diced
-2-3 cloves garlic, minced (honestly, I use the pre-minced stuff in the jar... no one knows)
-cilantro to taste
-2ish cups bottled Italian dressing (if you add in more ingredients above, you may need up to the whole bottle)

Mix it all in a bowl together and enjoy with tortilla chips. You can garnish with cilantro and sour cream, or just serve those things on the side.

*Other variations inclue various types of beans, olives, pimentos, etc... The possibilities are endless.
