Texas Caviar

I have to say I never heard of this dip until I moved here to Iowa. A neighbor introduced it to me this past Christmas which we all enjoyed. It's a nice alternative to your everyday salsa. You could also play around with the ingredients to suite your taste. I think for my next batch I will add corn since the fresh sweet corn will be ready soon! Serve with your favorite tortilla chips and enjoy!

1/2 red onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 bunch green onions, chopped
2 jalapeno peppers, chopped
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 pint cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 (8 ounce) bottle zesty Italian dressing
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained
1 (15 ounce) can black-eyed peas, drained
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1 bunch chopped fresh cilantro

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients with dressing and chill for one hour before serving.
