Every year I always make some sort of black eyed pea dish and this year I thought I would try a new recipe that I got from a friend in Georgia. It can be served as a side salad, however, I served it as a salsa. It was so delicious and so easy to make. Black eyed peas are supposed to bring you luck in the New Year, so I hope that you make this recipe and I wish amazing things for you in the New Year…including luck. Happy New Year, everyone!
What you will need
- 2 cans black-eyed peas, drained and rinsed
- 1 can rotelle, drained
- 1/2 large red onion, diced
- 1 small yellow pepper
- 1 jalapeno, diced
- 1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
- 1/3 cup of lime dressing
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Mix together the beans, rotelle, red onion, jalapeno and yellow pepper. Pour the dressing over the mixture along with the chopped cilantro and salt and pepper. Toss everything together and serve with tortilla chips or as a side dish to your New Year’s meal.
