Cowboy Caviar {Vegan}

A few weeks ago I showed up at my moms house for dinner to find this bean and corn salad and fell in love.  She called it Cowboy Caviar and served it with tortilla chips.  I will be making this regularly through out the hot summer months.

Cowboy Caviar {Vegan}  

2 TBS Rice Vinegar (I didn't have any so I used regular white vinegar)
1 1/2 tsp salad oil
3-4 TBS lime juice
1 clove garlic, minced (about 1/2 tsp)
1/8 tsp pepper
1 large firm ripe avocado
1 can black-eyed peas, rinsed well
1 can corn or 1 1/2 cups of frozen corn
2/3 c. thinly sliced green onions
2/3 c. chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 lb. Roma tomatoes, seeded and coarsely chopped
Salt, to taste
1 bag tortilla chips
1.  In large bowl, mix vinegar, lime, oil, garlic and pepper.  Peel, pit and cut avocado and add to vinegar mixture, mixing to coat.
2.  Drain and rinse black-eyed peas and corn.  Add everything together, mixing gently to coat.  Add salt to taste.  Let it sit and marinate all together for at least 15 minutes.
