INGREDIENTS

1 medium bell pepper

1 small red onion

2 (15 ½ ounce) cans black-eyed peas

1 (15 ¼ ounce) can corn, no salt added

3 tablespoons canola oil

2 tablespoons vinegar

1 teaspoon cumin

¼ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon ground black pepper

Optional:

¼ cup fresh cilantro leaves

STEPS

  1. Rinse and chop bell pepper, removing core and seeds. Peel, rinse, and chop onion.
  2. If using, rinse and chop cilantro leaves.
  3. In a colander, drain and rinse black-eyed peas and corn.
  4. In a large bowl, add pepper, onion, peas, corn, cilantro if using, and remaining ingredients. Mix well.

IDEAS

  • Dried black-eyed peas may be cheaper than canned. If using dried, cook according to package directions until peas are soft but not mushy. Drain, rinse, and add 3 cups cooked peas to salad. Use leftovers in other recipes later in the week.
  • Try chilling the salad. Serve it over cooked spinach or kale.
  • Use any type of vinegar you have on hand. Try balsamic, cider, or red or white wine vinegar.
  • Use black beans in place of black-eyed peas if you like.
