Black Eyed Pea Salsa aka Texas Caviar

This is my version of Texas Caviar and I want to let you know, "it rocks".


I made it for the first time for a camping trip my hubby and I took a couple of weeks ago.
We ate the entire jar the minute we cracked it open.

I think it's a great alternative to regular salsa. Also would work great in place of relish on hot dogs, on grilled chicken and I'm sure a ton of other ways that escape me for the moment.

Linked with Foodie Friday and Weekend Potluck.
