My favorite way to serve rubia as a siman heralds back to my Southern roots in this version of Texas caviar. There are many recipes for the Texas favorite, which got its name when the humble black-eyed pea made its way onto Houston’s Neiman Marcus menu in a salsa-style marinated salad. This winning variation gets its flavor boost from pineapple.
The recipe also calls for sweet onion. Sweet onion varieties such as Vidalia and Walla Walla onions are bred to be less pungent than the common yellow onion. A Spanish red onion will work just as well if can’t obtain the sweet yellow variety.
