The unique flavors of these fresh garden ingredients really tantalize your taste buds. This fresh salad was one of the stars of the show on our chilled salad bar, during our family reunion last year. It is a wonderful way to incooperate fiber into your daily diet, and it taste great too.It is fresh tasty,and very filling.The eye appeal alone makes you want to try it,forgetting all about the fact that it is good for you. There is no real caviar in this dish, it gets it's name from the black eye peas, used frequently in the Southern states.
