Lucky Black-eyed Pea Salad

Ruby DeVos


Recipe adapted from Plant-Powered for Life: Eat Your Way to Lasting Health with 52 Simple Steps & 125 Delicious Recipes, by Sharon Palmer. I changed this recipe to make only two servings, use canned beans, cucumbers, and substituted honey for the agave nector.
