Black-eyed Pea Salad

You say peas, I think black-eyed. Is there any other kind? Not for this Southern gal. That’s especially true when eating peas makes all the difference for good luck in the New Year. Trouble is, I have a heck of a time convincing everybody else of the importance of these little spotted jewels.

For years I cooked a caldron of dried peas, just like my mother did and my grandmother did before her. Then I would spend the whole first week of the New Year eating peas every day to get rid of them.

So I came up with a Black-eyed Pea Salad to take care of the extras. This salad is hearty enough to make an entree for New Year’s lunch or serves as a suitable side dish.While everyone doesn't like a bowl full of peas like I do, just about everyone loves black eyed pea salad.
