Black Eyed Pea Dip

From: my former supervisor Claire

Claire brought this to an office pot-luck event, and it was gobbled up. It's super quick to throw together and a crowd-pleaser.

1 can black eyed peas, drained
1 can shoepeg corn, drained
1 can black beans, drained
1 large can diced tomatoes, drained
2 bunches scallions, chopped
fresh parsley, chopped
1 bottle Garlic Expressions (you won't use the whole bottle)

Mix all ingredients well. Add as much Garlic Expressions as you want. You can remove the garlic cloves from the bottle, chop, and add to the mix. Serve with tortilla chips (the Scoops type works well).

* Look for Garlic Expressions in the produce, bakery or dressing sections. It can be used as a bread dipping sauce, salad dressing, or marinade.

Made this again this morning to bring to a Super Bowl party and used Garlic Expressions (the last time I made it I used a different brand of garlic vinaigrette). I thought it needed a little something else, so I added the juice of 1 lime, which seemed to help.

Note: Garlic Expressions is just a garlic vinaigrette. If you can't find it, just use a different brand of garlic vinaigrette salad dressing.
