Unique Colorful Dip - Cowboy Caviar

Are you tired of the traditional dips?  Don't get me wrong, I love salsa, ranch, and other traditional dips!  But, when you try something truly unique, it can become quite addictive.  This dip is just that, ADDICTIVE!  It's a good thing that this recipe makes a big huge bowl full!  I adapted the Cowboy Caviar recipe that I found on Recipelion to get to this version.

Combine all of the following ingredients, chill and serve with chips.

1 can whole sweet corn, drained
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
4 roma tomatoes, diced
1 bunch green onions, chopped including greens
1 bunch cilantro, chopped or 1/3 tube cilantro herb blend
3/4 bottle of zesty italian salad dressing
2-3 Tbls. lime juice
1 avocado, chopped
1 can black olives (optional)

I would think that this would be a hit at any potluck or party.  It's just so unique and not something that most people have tried. I also would think that it should be fairly diet friendly since there is nothing too awful bad in it.  Use low calorie dressing and baked chips to make it extra healthy.  Enjoy!
