Southern Caviar

Southern Caviar

I am dedicated to using the garden items I have preserved from the summer. My pantry and freezer are currently housing deliciousness from what seems like a harvest long ago. That’s why this recipe for Southern Caviar is so appealing … it uses my black eyed peas, corn, tomatoes, bell peppers and onions from 2021. Whether you have a garden harvest or not, the recipe is easy and just gets better as it sits in your refrigerator. It’s a great side dish for any grilled meat you are set to enjoy.
