This is definately a nice "take-along" salad, and I don't mind having leftovers. Also works as a simple lunch.

This is Fantastic! I didn't use ham (didn't have any) and used fresh oregano & basil. Great to throw together for a quick lunch.

I thoroughly enjoyed this salad. The dressing is fantastic - a perfect blend of flavours. I used crisply fried bacon instead of ham, and no green onions. I added a little celery and a little extra sugar, as Carole suggested. I left out the hot pepper sauce, and used vegetable oil instead of olive oil. Thank-you for sharing this unique and truly delicious recipe!

We couldn't wait for it to cool, ate it in an hour after mixing it together! What a flavorful, great blend of flavors and textures. I don't know why I am surprised since it's Nurse Di and black-eyed peas, a great combination! I added some chopped celery and a little more sugar as we are wimps when it comes to tangy stuff. Oh-h-h what a nice lunch with some fresh sliced peaches for dessert. Thanks, Carole in Orlando

Golly this is good! I just enjoyed a bowl of this salad even though it's not cold yet. I cooked dry black-eyed peas instead of using canned ones, but stuck to the recipe otherwise. The last time I had black-eyed peas was when I was in high school, and I used to wonder why anyone ever bothered with them. Now I know! This salad is really good! The basil and oregano in the dressing were particularly flavorful. Thank you very much for this recipe.
