{grabbing greens} black eyed pea salad


black eyed pea salad by amy twomey

ingredients

1 bag of black eyed peas
1 large red onion, diced
1 yellow, one red bell pepper, diced
1 jalepeno, seeded, diced
spring of fresh parley, diced
2 large tomatoes, diced
1/4 c. lime juice
sea salt to taste
fresh ground pepper to taste




The hardest thing about this simple recipe is waiting the few hours for your black eyed peas to cook. The rest takes no more then 5 min to toss it all together. Boil peas in water for 5 minutes, turn heat off, cover and let sit one hour. drain and wash peas well, adding fresh water and bring to a boil again. This time after it boils, cover and turn to low heat and cook for about 2-3 hours checking to see if need to add any water. Must always be covered with water. After you cook, drain and cool off beans in fridge...then toss together the rest of the ingredients and put back in the fridge.


Serve cold. Perfect for Spring! Happy Spring friends. Have a great Spring Break.
