South Georgia "Caviar"

Bonnie Roberts Recipe

By Bonnie Roberts charmingcottagerosey

This yummy appetizer comes from a dear Bunco friend who got it off the food-network. It's the yummiest dip I've ever eaten. You'll agree when you try it.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This is an unusual - and delicious - play on traditional salsa.  It would be perfect for your next party... and is sure to get people talking!

Bonnie suggests refrigerating it overnight to let the flavors meld, but the Kitchen Crew and I couldn't bring ourselves to stop munching on it long enough to do that!

    We liked the "Scoops" type of corn chip with this...to get every last bit!

    I have a similar recipe a friend from Georgia gave me, but hers calls for the Zesty Italian salad dressing. I recommend you try it as I have made it both ways and I think it does have a little extra "zip". I like this a lot of different ways too. Over grilled fish, steak or chicken breats, on a bed of salad greens and even on a baken potato. This is a great recipe!

    I've had this before expect with black beans instead of the black eyed peas. I bet this would be good with chick peas too!
