Black Eyed Pea Salad

When the black eyed peas are ready and cooking in the pot, one of the dishes I know we will be making is my favorite Black Eyed Pea Salad. I always make sure when I cook a pot of peas that there will be enough left over for the salad. We have been making this salad for more years than I can could count and is one of our favorites. It is a great salad to serve as a side dish, take on a picnic, or even as a great dip. I am excited to share one of our favorites with you today.

  2. Hey Miz Helen-

    I made a recipe very similar to this for a New Years Eve party. As you know black eye peas are suppose to be good luck.

    The recipe was a huge hit and I had an empty plate to bring home.
