This is a recipe that I stumbled upon years ago and I tweaked it to my liking. It's easy to substitute things that you don't like. It is also better the longer it sits.

This delicious black-eyed pea salad would be a great addition to many meals. The tang from the red wine and balsamic vinegar add a punch of flavor. We enjoyed the crunchy sweet bits from the peppers and the heat from the jalapenos. Bacon adds some smokiness and gives a savory flavor. We let ours chill overnight and it was perfect.
