Cowboy Caviar

I spent four days up north visiting friends this summer.  Since I hate to arrive empty handed I brought along Barefoot Contessa Outrageous Brownies (yes...they ARE OUTRAGEOUS) and Cowboy Caviar.  I have no idea why it's called Cowboy Caviar...the beans perhaps?  Both were a huge hit.  You can find the Outrageous brownie recipe on the Barefoot Contessa website.  Thought you'd enjoy the Cowboy Caviar recipe too.

Cowboy Caviar

1 Can black beans, drained
1 Can Black-eyed peas, drained
1 Can whole kernel corn, drained
2 stalks celery, finely chopped
1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
1/2 red pepper, finely chopped
1/2 green pepper, finely chopped
Handful of cilantro, finely chopped

1/2 Cup olive oil
3/4 Cup sugar 
1/2 Cup cider vinegar

Biol oil, sugar and vinegar for three minutes.  Cool.  Mix dressing with vegetables.  The longer it marinates the better it tastes.  Serve with scoops
