This easy Black-Eyed Pea Salsa is a colorful and delicious appetizer that can easily be prepared ahead of time.
This is a good base recipe and is easily adjustable to your own personal taste. It’s a perfect appetizer any time of the year, but I especially love it for New Year’s (got to have those black-eyed peas for prosperity, right?!).
Ways to Customize Black-Eyed Pea Salsa
There are so many ways to adapt this recipe to your personal preference! Substitute or add the following (be sure to adjust dressing amount if adding ingredients):
- Canned sweet corn (drained)
- Chopped avocado (be sure to add just before serving so it doesn’t brown)
- Canned black beans (rinsed and drained)
- Use red onion and/or green onions instead of yellow onion
Other names I’ve heard this recipe called are Cowboy Caviar and Texas Caviar but I’ve always thought of it as a salsa. Whatever you choose to call it, it’s refreshingly delicious!
How Far In Advance Can I Make This?
This recipe is best when served within 24 hours (store in an airtight container in the refrigerator).
