Red Neck Caviar

Yesterday Natalie posted a version of her favorite dip “L.A. Caviar” from Lulu’s.  Today I’d like to continue on with the black-eyed pea goodness and share with you a few of the recipes I’ve stumbled across over the years.  I’m stealing Natalie’s picture from yesterday…she won’t mind!  ;-)

This dip actually has many names that have been assigned to it:  L.A. Caviar, Black Eyed Pea Dip, South Georgia Caviar, Southern Style Salsa, but my favorite is Red Neck Caviar!  ;-) However, all variations of it are quite similar.  I have three versions of this recipe that I have tried and that I’d like to share.  The first one is from Paula Deen and she calls it South Georgia Caviar.  Hers goes something like this:

South Georgia Caviar

  • Two 15 oz cans black (drained)
  • One 15 oz can whole kernel corn (drained)
  • One 10 oz can Ro-Tel tomatoes
  • 2 cups chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh jalapeno peppers
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • One 8 oz bottle Italian salad dressing
  • One 4 oz jar chopped pimento (drained)

Mix together and chill

The next recipe is from Pampered Chef and it is very similar to Paula’s recipe just slightly different.  They refer to theirs as Southern-style salsa

Southern-Style Salsa

  • 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1 fresh jalapeno pepper seeded and chopped
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 1 T chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • One 15 oz can black-eyed peas (drained)
  • 1 cup frozen whole kernel corn thawed
  • 1/3 cup Italian salad dressing
  • 1/4 tsp hot pepper sauce

The third version is my all time favorite!  It’s from a friend of mine and as you can guess it’s called Redneck Caviar!

Redneck Caviar

  • 2 can black-eyed peas (drained)
  • 1 can black beans (drained)
  • 1 small can of shoepeg corn (drained)
  • 6 green onions chopped
  • 1 large tomato chopped
  • 1 bell pepper chopped
  • 1 cup fresh parsley chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 T fresh cilantro
  • 8 oz Italian dressing

This dip is great served with Tortilla chips or Corn chips.  I have been known to mix and match recipes, but it makes no difference…..any version of this dip is fantastic!!!!
