This is my version of the standard Black-eyed Pea Salad. I love the tanginess of the dressing and the extra kick of heat in this salad. Cooking the peas in the dressing infuses the flavor, making it an absolute knock-out dish!!

How to Make Black-eyed Pea Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk, or use blender to blend together the dressing ingredients.
  2. In a large microwaveable bowl, combine black-eyed peas and 1 of the diced jalapeno peppers. Pour half to two-thirds of the dressing over black-eyed peas and jalapeno and toss well. Microwave for 40-45 minutes on high until black-eyed peas are done, stirring halfway through (start checking for doneness after 30 minutes).
  3. After peas are done, let cool down and add red and green peppers, onions, tomatoes, jalapenos, cilantro, garlic, salt and pepper, and remaining dressing. Mix well. Chill for at least two hours and serve.
