Black-Eyed Pea Salad

READY IN: 24hrs 15mins
Recipe by Acerast

This is a very different kind of salad that was originally published in a Better Homes and Gardens Holiday Cooking magazine with the Greens Stuffed Ham (#200036). We like to use this recipe as a unique way to serve the traditional Black-eyed peas for New Years Day. (The cooking time below reflects the chilling time).

I made this for our NYE celebration. Black-eyed peas for good luck and all that... :) I only made 1/2 the recipe, using red wine vinegar. My black-eyed peas had bacon in them, which really added to the flavor of the dish. I also added some diced roma tomatoes and served everything over mixed greens. Very yummy! Thanks for sharing.
