Texas Caviar

The Texas Caviar is great with crackers, tortilla chips, bruschetta, and crostini.  As a staple at our family picnics and parties, we knew we had to create one that was oil-free and healthy!  Enter xantham gum!  Wahoo – a little powder that packs a serious punch of viscosity! Easy and quick to make and a surefire hit at every party.
