Mississippi Caviar Recipe

My mother shared her family recipe for Southern-inspired “Mississippi Caviar” over the holidays. This bright, zesty dip is perfect for a party! I gave her original recipe a healthier update, by lowering the salt and oil, and pushing up the fresh flavors. Pair it with bean, lentil, sprouted grain, or tortilla chips for a wonderful crunch!

1 15-ounce can black-eyed peas, rinsed, drained

1 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed, drained

1 15-ounce can corn, drained

2 small plum tomatoes, diced

1 medium bell pepper (green, red, orange, or yellow), diced
