Piyaz - Turkish Black Eyed Pea Salad

READY IN: 24hrs 30mins
Recipe by Nye McClelland

The only part in this recipe that is time consuming is the peas. If you haven't got the time to boil the peas just buy canned peas (3 cans should do it).

This worked beautifully with a combination of canned black-eyed peas, chick peas and kidney beans!
