A favorite at our house in the summer. I am itching to make it again this year! I would make it several times in a week, and on into football season. Best if made ahead and refrigerated so that all the flavors can meld together. I added a splash of white wine vinegar to make this just perfect. To kick it up another notch, I used fresh corn that we had grilled, husk on, with butter and rosemary. Serve with multigrain tostito scoops and endives (no sour cream), and I officially got hubs to ENJOY black-eyed peas.
