Blackeyed Peas Salsa

Actually, this Blackeyed Peas Salsa can be a salad as well as this salsa-type side dish. This might be a new favorite of ours for future get togethers, or an easy snack or lunch.

Along with your blackeyed peas you’ll need red onion, scallions, limes, bell peppers and seasoning.  You can steam the blackened peas or simmer them, covered in water, for 15-20 minutes. Either way, let them cool before putting your ingredients together. I tried some all natural, steamed, blackeyed peas from Melissa’s that made making this dish a breeze. Peppers and red onion are from Underwood Farms.

Dice the peppers and onions, and juice the limes.
