South Georgia "Caviar"

This is known by many names....Texas or Cowboy caviar, is the most frequent ones I have heard. I have made this before, but couldn't find my recipe. Jenna had been hungry for it, so we made it the night before she left for Israel. I only had one can of black eyed peas, so used 1 can of black beans. I didn't have pimentos, so left that out.
