Old-Fashioned Texas Caviar Recipe

My husband loves spicy food...I on the other hand usually avoid it since I suffer from GI problems. Several years ago his sister gave me her recipe for homemade Texas Caviar. You can increase or decrease the salt and ground black pepper according to your own taste. This recipe will make approximately 2 3/4 cups.

Old-Fashioned Texas Caviar

2 cans of black-eyed peas
1/4 cup of red wine vinegar
1/2 cup salad oil
1/2 cup finely thin sliced white onions
1 clove of garlic
1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Drain your black-eyed peas and place them in a medium sized mixing bowl. In a small mixing bowl, combine the red wine vinegar with the salad oil, then stir in the finely chopped onions, clove of garlic, salt and ground black pepper. Pour this mixture into the black-eyed peas bowl and cover. Refrigerate for 12 to 24 hours. Remove bowl from the refrigerator and remove the clove of garlic and toss away. Drain liquid from the bowl and serve the caviar chilled.
