Food Porn

969945_resizedFood pornography  is the romanticized presentation of juicy, yummy, sho’nuff delicious food and drink.

I had limited funds in my account and had folks coming over to play rise and shine double deck pinochle I needed a delicious appetizer to feed them. I went through my pantry in a desperate attempt to find something in there that could be that perfect dish.   Low and behold I came across 2 cans of black eyed peas.

COUNTRY GIRL CAVIAR

2    16 oz. cans black-eyed peas, drained              2    cloves garlic, minced

¼  cup bell pepper, diced                                          2    jalapeno peppers, finely chopped

¼  cup celery, diced                                                     1    medium avocado, diced

½  cup purple onion, diced                                       ¼  cup cilantro, finely chopped

2     tsp. ground cumin                                                 ¼  cup Italian salad dressing

1     tsp. seasoning salt                                                   3   small tomatoes

1/2 cup cantaloupe diced                                               1   (11 oz.) can kernel sweet corn

2    T. lime juice

Drain black eyed peas and pour into a bowl.  Add remaining ingredients to the bowl.  Toss until everything is well blended.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.  The refrigeration will allow the flavor to romanticize and become juicy and yummy.  Serve with pita and scoop corn chips.
