THE BEST Cowboy Caviar—healthy dip/salad/snack!

I got this Cowboy Caviar recipe at a Mommy & Me recipe swap last summer, and every time I make it people inhale it as if it were crack! And everyone asks for the recipe. It was a huge hit at our Super Bowl Party, and I thought I’d just post it instead of handing out copies. Sharing the love… The first time I made it, my mother-in-law, Tammy, spoke to her sister, dear Auntie Lil—in Winnipeg, Canada, who was raving about a salad she had just tried; it turned out to be a variation of what I had just served in Los Angeles! But her version was called Mexican Corn and Bean Sierra, with black beans, red onion, and parsley—instead of black eyed peas, green onion, and cilantro. Funny! I’ve since seen variations popping up at grocery stores, parties, you name it. Trader Joe’s just came out with their own version of it. It’s obviously HOT HOT HOT right now! I hope you’ll try my version because it’s really fantastic. Serve with tortilla chips for the ultimate party food. Make sure to put out forks for the carb-counting-peeps, because it eats like a salad too. Or they can scoop it up on celery sticks. Oh—and I highly recommend doubling it. Orna’s Notes Many people are not fans of cilantro (you either love it or hate it), so you can substitute with Italian Parsley. Shoepeg Corn can be difficult to find; I found it at Gelsons Market. If you can’t find it just substitute with regular corn. What is shoepeg corn? Wikipedia description >> What part of the green onion do I use?
