Cowboy Caviar Dip

So, who does not like a hang out with a big ol’ bowl of chips and some dip?

Well, what if I told you that this dip is not only delicious, it is also good for you, it is also gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan?

But wait, don’t make it yet!

What if I also told you that it it makes a pretty tasty spread on sammiches! And it all starts with a simple can of blackeye peas, so it is also budget friendly!

I call that a winner of a dip!

•1 (16 oz) can black eyed peas, drained
•1/2 bell pepper, diced*
•4 green onions, sliced
•1 clove garlic, diced
•1/8 tsp crushed red pepper
•1/4 tsp sea salt
•1/2 cup salad oil
•1/4 cup red wine vinegar

*A large jar of chopped pimiento works a treat as well.

Drain and rinse the peas, then toss in a large bowl with the veggies and seasoning.

Add the vinegar and then the oil, then toss to blend well.

Cover and stash in the fridge for a couple of hours – or, always more better, overnight – until needed.

Using a slotted spoon (to get rid of the excess oil), transfer the now nicely marinated black eyed peas and stuff to a blender jar and give it all all a good whizzz until smooth.

Great, garlicky bean dip!

Or sammich spread, try a bit of this on a tortilla or bit of pita bread before adding sliced veggies and/or assorted luncheon meats, I believe you will be most pleased.
