A New Twist on Texas Caviar

It seems this time of year dips are plentiful. And I'm always looking for a new one to spice up the old regulars.
Might I add, I am in no way on any sort of a diet during this holiday eating frenzy, but it is nice to have a "go-to" that's sans the mayo and cream cheese. Try this for an easy, fresh and colorful addition to your dip extravaganzas.

Feta Black Bean Dip
1/4 cup of sugar (I use slightly less)
1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
Salt to taste
1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can of Whole Kernel Corn
1 small can (11 oz) of white shoepeg or chipotle corn
1/3 bunch of scallions, chopped
1/3 bunch of cilantro, chopped
1 tub of crumbled feta cheese

Whisk sugar, vinegar and oil in a large bowl. Add the black beans, corn, scallions, cilantro and feta and mix well. Chill until serving time. Serve with tortilla chips.
