Cowboy Caviar

This recipe for homemade salsa has one of the silliest names I've ever come across. It's also one of the biggest crowd pleasers.

To make:

In a bowl, mix together the following, all finely chopped: 1 green pepper, 1 red pepper, 1 yellow pepper, 1 small red onion. Add in 1 can of shopeg corn, 1 can pinto beans, and 1 can black eyed peas (all drained).

In a small pot, bring to a boil 1/2 cup cider vinegar. Stir in 3/4 cup sugar until it dissolves. Remove from the burner and add in 1 cup canola oil. Pour over the veggie mixture.

Marinate overnight. Drain the liquid from the mixture before serving.

It's pretty addictive and tends to disappear fast when you serve it to a group, so I'd recommend setting some aside in a little bowl beforehand. You'll definitely want some leftovers to enjoy the next day.


  1. is it sweet tasting? also, what is shopeg corn? and i need a recommendation on a blogging book. i dislike my blog. or maybe i just dislike writing.

  2. mmm, i could totally eat this right now.
