          Though this recipe called Texas caviar but I am making sure you that you do not need any fish eggs to make this salad.

   Why this Bean salad called Caviar?

          From my research, I found that this salad originally uses black eyed peas and small yellow corn which resemblance to fish eggs. Because of this resemblance this bean salad called caviar salad. Also there is a saying that in early 19th century a woman who lives in Austin TX comes up with this black eyed pea salad recipe & that’s why it called Texas Caviar salad.

     Another interesting fact associated with this recipe is GOOD LUCK. Many people believe that eating this Texas Caviar Salad at New Year eve could bring good luck to them.

          As a Houstonian, I have been eating this Texas caviar salad over a decade. Sometimes bought from outside (even our Walmart carry this), some time made at home but never pay attention to the reason behind its name until last year when I made a You Tube Video on New Year food Traditions. Don’t forget to checkout a quick demonstration of this recipe there and other fun fact about New year Good luck. 🙂

          There are a lot of versions of this Texas Caviar salad recipe (as usual) but my version is best ;). I try to keep mine simple but full of flavor. One more thing I like about this recipe is its lightness.

          I use curly parsley leaves here which is not really goes with authentic Texan flavor. So if you want more original taste you can avoid parsley leaves. You do not need to add cilantro either.

          The beauty of this recipe is you can add more or less of any ingredients.

          If you make it or if you have any query about this recipe, let me know in the comments section.
