Recipe: Black Eyed Peas Salad

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.
