Anybody know what Carolina Caviar is? A much beloved food across the South, but what is it. Place your guess, but be honor bound not to Google it!

I know I've had it before and remember it being a Blackeyed Peas based type of Pico-de-Gallo/Salsa.

A yankee from Massachusetts introduced Carolina Caviar to me. Ain't that something? I love the stuff.

Bojangles has been using that line lately “the caviar of the south “ in regards to there pimento cheese biscuits

Pimento cheese on a Cajun filet will make your tongue slap your face

Lived here all of my almost 62 years and did not have a clue. First thought of the egg sacks we used to bread and fry from laden hens, but waited for the explanation. Was actually surprised as I have yet to see or hear that from anyone.... maybe I live in a cave???

I had some of that Palmetto stuff in the fridge. Wifey used some of it for a recipe. I was making a burger one day and wanted something to put on it so a put a dollop of that stuff on it. I LOVED IT!. Used it all up on burgers.

As far as the caviar goes, Google says it is the black eyed pea mixture which makes more sense to me and since I found it on the internet it has to be true.

Palmetto or Price's are both very good. The best hamburger I have ever had at home is a bun, hamburger patty, Prices pc, a fried egg, and fried green tomato slices. Nothing else to ruin it: ketchup, mustard, etc. Absolutley great.

The one difference in the recipe I use is that instead of the Italian dressing, use Charlie Mills or any other vinegar & spice based barbecue sauce. It is awesome.

There’s another brand called 3 sisters or 3 brothers, can’t remember which that is also very good. I like Palmetto and my wife makes it from scratch that we like too.

Guess all the internet is wrong, cause no where does it have pimento cheese. Every website that has Carolina Caviar has black eyes peas mix.

The Cajun Filet biscuits must be better in your direction than they are here now. They are one level above sucking the hind tit on a boar hog.
