Hillbilly Caviar

Also known as Red Neck Caviar!

Did you ever find a recipe that you just love, but are surprised you even like it?  My friend Cindy made this for a church event and I didn’t even want to try it.   Finally I sampled it and loved it.   I begged for the recipe which she shared. It is a very healthy treat and tastes wonderful.  It is great served with Scoops Tortilla Chips or any type of crackers. I took it to work for the guys to try and they all gave it a thumbs up! I thought you might enjoy this tasty recipe.
