Lucky New Year’s Dish: Texas Caviar w/ Black Eyed Peas

I never liked Black-Eyed Peas growing up. They were a New Year’s Day tradition for our family and my parents always made us eat at least one bite for luck. I originally shared this recipe for Texas Caviar w/ black eyed peas earlier this summer, but the dish is so perfect for New Year’s, I wanted to re-post it today in case anyone is searching for a way to prepare black eyed peas for a party or their family. (If Mom had made this for New Year’s, there would have been no complaining. It’s that good, I promise!)
The main ingredients are black eyed peas, black beans, corn, chopped veggies, vinegar, olive oil and sugar. The flavors all come together for one great dish. Yum! It’s fabulous served with chips or as a topper on salads.

I love this Southern tradition and it's healthy too.
It does look good, can you leave out the black eyed peas? My hubs is from OK so he'd love black eyed peas but not me. Maybe mixed up with all the other good stuff I could stand them. I'll have to see what he says, let him look at recipe and your photo. Now I'd like all this with chips I think. I'll eat many things with chips I wouldn't otherwise, go figure huh, all in my mind as hubs likes to tell me. Thanks for sharing this recipe. My Mother's family always made sauer kraut on New years and I hated that stuff, always got sick from it. Haven't eaten sauer kraut since I was a kid. Happy New Year
