Today's treat idea was passed along by my daughter-in-law...
...who got it from her cousin...
...who heard about it from a friend...
You get the idea. It's one of those great recipes that's been passed along so many times, it's impossible to give credit.
That said, you will love this little recipe - it's inexpensive, healthy, easy to put together, can be made in advance and makes A LOT.
So, if you need to take something to a party for an appetizer, whip up some Mexican Caviar!
1 can black beans
1 can lentils
1 can niblets corn
Drain, rinse and combine in a bowl.
1 cup finely chopped purple onion
1 cup finely chopped celery
1 cup finely chopped bell pepper (two colours)
Add to bowl and stir.
3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup sugar
salt and pepper
Heat dressing ingredients to melt sugar, then cool.
Pour over veggies and beans and let sit overnight.
Drain off dressing and serve.
That's it! The cans are all regular "soup can" size. It lasts well in the fridge and I have even frozen some without a problem.
Mexican caviar - definitely a keeper!
