Delicious. I am cooking very low-sodium right now, so I soaked and cooked dried black-eyed peas. While they were cooking, I made the dressing with just a pinch of salt. I also used fresh oregano from the garden and did not seed the tomato after watching an America's Test Kitchen episode which concluded that the flavor is carried by the jelly around the seeds. I tossed the warm beans with the dressing - let me tell you, I could not resist "tasting" them repeatedly. Black eyed peas cook up pretty quickly, so if you watching sodium, try doing that intead of using the canned.

Delicious, sure to become a regular. I sauteed the onion and garlic though as I don't like them raw. Made me think, how about serving this as a side to a mess of roasted veggies such as peppers, onion slabs, a couple of varieties of potatoes. Then add some cornbread or rice and voila! Mmmm...can't wait til tommorrow night!

Absolutely YUM! Everyone should try this. I used lime juice, and it took me exactly 5 minutes to throw it together. Very good over fresh greens.

Absolutely SCRUMPTIOUS! Wonderful fresh salad that packs a great FIBER punch! I did not peel or seed the tomato and tripled the amount of cilantro. Make sure you use freshly squeezed lemon juice as it DOES make a difference.

I am finding that I really enjoy bean salads! I would have never thought cilantro & black eyed peas would go together but they definitely do! Thanks for an easy lunch! :)

The perfect one dish meal for a hot summer evening. This is a lively, healthy and colorful combination of flavors. I used the juice from one lemon, green onions and approximately 1 tsp of dried cilantro, which were the only changes I made. Thanks, EdsgirlAngie

Absolutely and perfectly wonderful!! I followed the directions exactly, and the result was even yummier than I hoped. Such a great part of a summer meal because it's so cool and refreshing. I had this with Turkish Chicken Thighs, but it would be wonderful next to any chicken or steak or even just alone for a healthy vegetarian meal. Wow. Thanks for sharing a real keeper!
