Week 32, Recipe 1: Black-eyed Pea Salad

So I had this salad for the first time on the 4th of July.  It BLEW. MY. MIND!!! OMG!! WHY IS IT SO GOOD?? HOW DID I NEVER KNOW ABOUT IT!?!  SO SIMPLE! SO DELICIOUS!  I had to have it and I had to make it!  My chef-y mind decided to go for a simple take on an already simple dish for a cookout.  I knew it would be splendiferous!
  • 2 cans of black-eyed peas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 container of fresh salsa (don't go for the jarred, use the ones in plastic tubs in the refrigerated section or make your own)
  • juice of one lime
  • cilantro
  • salt
Combine peas and salsa.  Add lime juice, cilantro and salt to taste. 

Results: A.MA.ZING!!  I LOVED THIS!! And it was a hit with everyone there!  It was referred to by some as, "My favorite dish here."  Woohoo!!   The above photo was taken quite far in the devour-ification of this yumminess!

My mom makes this but she uses tomatoes and onions and jalapeños instead of salsa. We use it as a dip with frito chips. It is yummy.
