I love this recipe because it's easy, quick and so versatile. You can change the herbs & spices to make it to your liking. One of our favorite alternatives uses Cajun spices. The blackeyed pea portion is even better if made ahead & reheated while the rice is cooking the day it's served.
Marinated Black-Eyed Pea Salad ~ This is an awesome recipe that uses lots of fresh ingredients and t gets better the longer you refrigerate it... It's a terrific dish to take to a potluck or any kind of get together.
I was never a black eyed pea fan till I had them in this dish. Oh… my…. gosh. It’s wonderful! You can serve it alone or with brown rice which goes extra good with it. FYI did you know they eat black eyed peas in the south for luck?
Cowboy Caviar ~ whether you call it Texas caviar, black bean salsa, blackeyed pea salad, or Southwestern bean salad, this all-American cross between a salsa and a salad is just plain GOOD! This multi-tasker is always welcome at barbecues and potlucks, and it has Cinco de Mayo, Memorial Day, and 4th of July written all over it. | appetizer | side dish | healthy | high protein | high fiber | gluten free | rainbow |
