This is a colorful and tasty salad for summer. It's nice for potlucks. The beets are optional, but I like the sweetness they add to the salad.

This salad was excellent. I really liked the flavors, so did DH, I think this is the first time we have eaten black eyed peas cold and we were very pleasantly suprised at how good this was. Will definitely be making this again.
