Blue Ribbon Recipe

Black-eye pea dip like this has been around for a while. But, we love the twist on this recipe. Using balsamic vinegar makes this feel a little fancy. Chopped green, red, and yellow bell pepper, along with cilantro, gives the dip a very fresh flavor. A delicious dip for a cookout, game night or even at a tailgate. The longer it sits, the better it gets.
