Texas Caviar Recipe

Publisher Photo
My neighbor gave me a container of this zippy, tangy salsa one Christmas and I had to have the recipe. I fix it regularly for potlucks and get-togethers and never have leftover. I take copies of the recipe with me whenever I take the salsa. —Kathy Faris, Lytle, Texas

"This is a great recipe! It was so yummy with rice as a quick dinner that doesn't heat up the house in the summer!"

"This is one of our family favorites. I'm always asked to bring it to our big family gatherings. I have to triple the recipe and we still run out quickly. Yummy!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 5, 2011

"Super easy!! I just have to remember to go and look for pimentos with the vegetables and not with the pickles & olives. I think it might also be good with some avocado chunks in it also. But all in all a very YUMMY recipe!!"

"my husband has made this for snack at work and everyone loves it. We use whole olives as pimentos are hard to find. Also we add chickpeas!"
