Life Changing Veggie Cilantro Dip

Taste it Tuesday!
This dip is just so GOOD I couldn't help but share
Oh wait, wrong dip....

Here it is!  Now remember, I am no food blogger and we all know my photography leaves a bit to be desired... but this stuff is SO good, bear with me!

Here's what you're going to need:
*scoop corn chips or other "scoop" chip
*2 cans of black eyed peas (drain and rinse)
*4 stalks of celery (is that right? I think I mean: 4 stems off of 1 stalk! I do NOT mean 4 bags of celery, unless you are celery crazy, then do what you want!)
*1 red onion
*1 cucumber
*1 bunch of cilantro
*1 red, 1 green, 1 yellow pepper
*1/2 bottle of "viva italian dressing" although I made it this time with Italian vinaigrette with EVOO (extra virgin olive oil).

and you CAN add: a splash of olive oil (i don't, I figure the dressing has enough oil), salt, pepper, lime juice or red pepper flakes.  I say make it without this stuff 1st and then see if YOU think it needs something else!
Chop all the veggies into tiny bite size pieces,  put 1/2 a bottle of the dressing in and MIX.  I like to let it sit in the fridge overnight.  
I'll tell you, I've taken this to a LOT of family picnic type things and it's often gotta the look of "ewww, I don't like veggies" BUT... if you can get someone to give it a try you won't be taking much home!  
My daughter loves it too!!
Let me know if you give it a try and what you think! ENJOY!!
