Black Eyed Pea Salad

Here’s a easy recipe. It is a great side dish to BBQ or grilled just about anything. While I am a Southerner, traditionally prepared Black Eyed Peas are not my thing. I find them greasy and mushy, especially if they have been cooked for hours on end with pork fat.

( amounts are per person)

1/2 cup frozen Black Eyed Peas

1/4 Red Bell Pepper

1 Tablespoon Chopped Fresh Basil or Dill (I use the Dill Paste), and or Chopped Fresh Chives

Newman’s Own Olive Oil and Vinegar Salad Dressing

Cook the Black Eyed Peas per directions. Chop Red Pepper in 1/2″ dice. Drain peas, add Pepper and HerbsImage.

Mix and dress with Newman’s Own dressing. Salt and Pepper to taste. Leave on the counter for 10 minutes to let flavors meld, then eat or refrigerate and eat later.
