Many people in these parts eat black-eyed peas on New Year's Day for good luck through the coming year.

This recipe yields close to 4 cups. If you're serving a crowd, it doubles easily!

Healthy Cowboy Caviar:

• 1 (14-ounce) can black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained, or 3 cups cooked black-eyed peas
• 1/2 of a (14-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained, or 3/4 cup cooked black beans
• 1½ cups fresh corn kernels (about 2 ears of corn), or 1 (14-ounce) can corn, drained (This is Optional)
• 3/4 cup chopped tomatoes (I used about 2 Roma tomatoes)
• 1/2 medium red, orange or yellow bell pepper
• 1/2 cup chopped red onion
• 1/4 cup chopped cilantro or flat-leaf Italian parsley, leaves and stems
• 1/2 - 1 jalapeños, ribs removed, seeded and finely chopped (This is Optional)
• 1 avocado (Also Optional), sliced or chopped, good to eat on the side with the caviar)

Italian Dressing:

• 1/2 of a ⅓ cup olive oil
• 1-1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar or lime juice
• 1 medium cloves garlic, pressed or minced, or use chopped garlic out of the jar
• 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoons salt, to taste
• 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
• 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
• 1/2 teaspoon maple syrup or honey
• ⅛ teaspoon red pepper flakes (This is Optional)
• Freshly ground black pepper, to taste


1. In a large serving bowl, combine the drained black-eyed peas, black beans, corn, chopped tomatoes, bell pepper, onion, cilantro and jalapeño.

2. In a cup, whisk together the dressing ingredients until emulsified. Drizzle the dressing over the serving bowl and toss until well mixed. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper. For best flavor, let the mixture marinate for at least 20 minutes before serving.
