A lighter, healthier option than potato or macaroni salad, this recipe is still packed with flavor.
3 cups Black Eyed Peas, cooked, rinsed and drained
½ cup Red Onion, Diced
1 Bell Pepper, Diced
3 T Dried Oregano
3 T Dried Parsley
Salt and Pepper to Taste
½ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
¼ cup Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
2 Cloves Garlic, Minced
1 T Honey, Agave or Maple Syrup
Combine the black eyed peas, onion, pepper, oregano, parsley, salt, and pepper in a large bowl.
Place the oil, lime juice, garlic and sweetener in a small jar with a cover and shake until fully combined. Pour the dressing over the salad, and toss gently.
Make at least one day in advance so the flavors can properly meld.
