Now that my family has moved to Texas, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to make Texas Caviar at our family BBQ last weekend. To celebrate Fourth of July, my brothers family, parents, and my family all got together! I volunteered to make my potato salad and this yummy caviar! This was definitely a huge hit and even all the kids (all 6 of them), ate this up and had seconds! Not only was this incredibly flavorful, but it wasn’t filling, and was perfect as an appetizer! I added a scoop to my cheeseburger and it was delicious! Next BBQ or picnic you go to, definitely prepare this!!
