Kentucky Caviar Recipe (aka- my FAVE new salsa!)

My sweet friend Natalie brought some homemade salsa to a picnic this weekend that was the bomb dot com.  I craved it all day yesterday before I finally begged her for the recipe (which she so graciously let me share with everyone!)  I think that it is the perfect summer food- everything is in season, it doesn't require you to turn on the oven, and it's a great way to get your vegetables in!  I think that today, I'll enjoy it on chips and tomorrow I'll scoop it into a pita.  It is well worth the carpal tunnel you will get from chopping up all the vegetables.  Enjoy!

Kentucky Caviar
Chop/dice the following into a large bowl:
1 Green Pepper
1 Red Pepper
1 Yellow Pepper
1 Orange Pepper
1 bunch of green onions
1/4 cup fresh cilantro (remember a little bit of cilantro goes a long way!) 
2-4 tomatoes
1-3 ears sweet corn cooked and cut off of cob

Then add:
1 can black eyed peas rinsed and drained
1 can white hominy rinsed and drained
1 can black beans rinsed and drained
3 T lime juice - I chopped 2-3 limes in half and squeezed over entire mixture
Salt to taste
stir, cover, and chill at least 8 hours before serving

Enjoy! This will feed an entire neighborhood, so be all Kentucky y'all and share it around!
