Texas Caviar – Favorite Take to a Summer Party Recipeww recipe

There are a lot of variations on  Texas Caviar – you really can’t go wrong with whichever version you choose – here are my two favorites – both are healthy and great to take to summer parties/picnics – great alternative to chips and dip and way better than being  the “I’m dieting and bringing the veggie tray” person….
