Georgia Caviar

Behold the glory! Seriously, this is just pretty.

This tastes good and all. I really to do enjoy eating it. But way more importantly it has single handled justified my purchase of a mandolin last year! Want a mandolin? Make this a few times without, you will feel totally justified!

So this summer and last I made this a couple times. It is a great little make ahead picnicy side dish.

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup oil
3 cans black-eyed peas, drained and rinsed
1 can niblet corn, such as Green Giant Mexicorn, drained and rinsed
2 green bell peppers, chopped
1 medium white onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped

In a small pot, heat the sugar and vinegar. Once the sugar dissolves, remove from the heat and add the oil. Mix well.

In a large bowl, mix the black-eyed peas, corn, green bell peppers, onions and red bell peppers and toss with the dressing. Place in the fridge until ready to eat (preferably at least overnight).

This tastes good, but I love the look of this. If you make a solid effort to chop the ingredients to roughly the size of the beans: perfection.

It is even pretty in process.
The question is do you serve with a slotted spoon or regular? I like things saucy, the wifey does not. It is best to have both on hand IMHO.

In fact the wifey likes it as a chip dip. Weirdo.

I have a new summer pot luck / picnic / get-together go to.
