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

Delicious! One of my favorite salads. In Turkey they often omit the cilantro - I can't stand the smell of it! Also, it is normally dressed with olive oil as well as the lemon. It can be made with normal white beans, too, and frequently is. They often add chopped hard-boiled egg, which is excellent. One addition I DON'T recommend is that of tahini, which they do in one area of the country - it turns a light, refreshing salad into a revolting...Erm... Can't think a word for it. Gloop?!

I thought this was wonderful. Made this for a party we had last weekend, and it was really excellent. I did not have sumac, and did about half and half cilantro and parsley, but other than that, made as directed. Several people thought it was reminiscent of a tabbouleh. It's definitely refreshing and summery, and extremely easy to make, especially if you use canned black-eyed peas (and I used three small cans, as suggested). Nye, this is excellent - I'll be making this often - thank you!

This salad is absolutely delicious. My husband didn't like it, however, because he doesn't like cilantro. You could substitute parsley or leave it out entirely, if you wanted, but I like it the way it is. I will make this often and am sharing it with my friends!
