Yummy Guacamole

Mix together the following:

1 15 oz can of shoe peg corn, drained
1 15 oz can of black eyed peas, drained
1 bunch of cilantro, chopped
1 bunch of green onions, chopped

Pour this dressing over and stir:

1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
2 garlic cloves, chopped or minced
3/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 tsp cumin

Just before serving add and stir:

2-3 avocados, chopped

Substitutions I've made...
Regular corn for shoe peg (the smaller, the better)
Navy or white beans for black eyed peas
Less cumin

This makes a huge amount of dip so you really need a crowd to eat it up. The avocados start to turn black after you cut them so it isn't very good after a day or two. The vinegar dressing makes this a very unique variation to traditional guacamole and the addition of so many greens makes the dip go much further with fewer avocados.
