Texas caviar is a cold dish of cooked black-eyed peas soaked in vinaigrette and enhanced with various chopped vegetables and herbs. Black-eyed peas are a heat-loving plant widely grown in Texas, where Helen Corbett, a chef and cookbook writer who advocated the use of fresh ingredients, popularized the dish in the 1950s.
