Flip Flops for Food?

Yes, that's right....but not the way you think! As many know, our family's vacation spot is New Smyrna Beach, FL; and this is b/c years ago Adam's Great Aunt Esther bought a condo on the beach and now it's his parents, so we are lucky enough to have a "family" condo that we can all use and enjoy immensely. This past April during my mother-in-law, Jeryl's, vacation there she had lunch at one of her favorite restaurants, Flip Flops, which happens to be where Hell's Kitchen Season 5 winner, Danny Veltri, is the head chef!!!! During that lunch, she and her friend had this amazing bean dip and luckily Jeryl was able to recreate it and bring it home to us:)

Black Eyed Pea Salsa
2 cans black eyed peas- drained
1 clove garlic minced or 1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 medium red onion- finely chopped
1 rib celery- diced
1 tsp crushed red pepper (more to taste)
1 TBS Worcestershire Sauce

Mix all and add dressing. Chill well.

Dressing:
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 TBS sugar

Whisk together until sugar is dissolved. Add more vinegar to taste if necessary.

Serve very cold w/ tortilla chips, baguette rounds, crackers, etc.
