Sharing the Love: Cowboy Caviar

This is going to go down as one of my favorite appetizers of all can expect to see it at all of my get-togethers in the future (from MIL's friend Katy, who got it from her daughter in law, Sarah.)

Cowboy Caviar

1 can black beans, rinsed & drained
1 can Mexican corn with red & green peppers, drained*
½ red onion, chopped
2-3 tomatoes, diced
3-4 avocados, diced

1 pkg dry Italian dressing
¼ c. white vinegar
½ c. vegetable oil**

Whisk vinegar, oil, and seasoning together, then stir in the beans and vegetables.  Chill for a few hours, or overnight.  Add avocados right before serving.

*I prefer corn, and then add fresh chopped peppers.
**I'd use a little less next time, I think.

Serve with scoop chips...ENJOY!

Think that might be the one in the Magnolia Lane cookbook.
