Texas Caviar

This is an awesome dish to serve at parties – especially on the big game day.   It’s easy to make, low cal (don’t tell anyone), gluten-free, and loaded with flavor.  Be sure to place in an air tight container after you make it and let it sit for at least a few hours.  The flavors really blend and kick butt.  Serve with chips.
