"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

Directions:
Pour drained peas, beans and corn into large serving bowl. Make sure diced tomatoes are fairly dry so there is not too much liquid in dip. Add cilantro and sliced onions. Dice avocados and squeeze lime juice over them so they don't brown too quickly and then add to the bowl. Add Italian dressing and stir to coat all the ingredients. May add salt and pepper to taste. Chill in refrigerator until cold and flavors blend. This is best served the same day with tortilla chips.

My family loves this dip for New Years Day so we will have luck in the coming year by eating the black eyed peas.
