Perfect watermelon day
I guess if I write on January 4th that it's my birthday, one could do the math and figure out that July 4th is my HALF birthday. So I'm X-and-a-half today.
This cowboy caviar is blowing my mind. Someone brought it to work for a potluck and I HAD to have the recipe. See below.
- 1 15 oz can black-eyed peas, drained
- 1 11 oz can white shoe-peg corn, drained
- 1 avocado, diced
- 1⁄2 c diced fresh tomato
- 1⁄4 c chopped garlic chives or regular chives
- 1⁄2 c chopped cilantro
- 1⁄4 c olive oil
- 1⁄4 c red wine vinegar
- 2 cloves garlic: pressed
Combine black-eyed peas, corn, avocado, tomatoes, chives and cilantro. Whisk together oil, vinegar and garlic separately to make dressing. Pour dressing over all. Refrigerate (stirring once in a while) for at least 4 hours, preferably 1 day.
Have a great fourth! Do you have a go-to dip or snack you like to have on this day?
