Vegetable Salsa

We have enjoyed something called "Cowboy Caviar" I decided to do some changes. The family seemed happy with it. You get a lot of vegetables and fiber in one dish. :)

1 Lg. can white shoepeg corn, drained
1 can black-eyed peas, drained
1 can black beans, drained
6 Roma tomatoes chopped up
1/2 C. Fresh Cilantro chopped
2 Avocados
6 green onions cut up small
1 1/2 C. Brown Rice, Buckwheat, Quinoa (I cooked 1 c. brown rice 1/4 c. Buckwheat 1/4 c. Quinoa with 4 cups of water)
15 slices of Jalapenos (I bought the sliced Jalapenos in a jar)

1/4 C. Olive oil
2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. granulated garlic
1/4 tsp. minced garlic
1 lime (Juice from lime)
2 T Chia (No one knew it was in there) Optional*

1. Mix all the ingredients of the dressing together set aside.

2. Mix the vegetables, beans and rice mixture together. Then gently stir in the dressing.

3. If you let it sit for a little bit the vegetables, rice and beans pick up more of the flavors from the dressing.

4. Can be served on tortillas, or with chips, or just plain.

5. Great healthy meal! With lots of nutrition. Nothing unhealthy in it!
