I decided to make this my entree and really enjoyed the meal. The creaminess of the polenta paired quite well with the texture of the black-eyed pea relish on top. I added about 1/4 cup diced red and orange peppers to the relish and next time will add a bit more. The finished dish is impressive looking so this would work well as a starter while entertaining.

Not sure this was worth the effort, to make a side with the rest of the meal. It was different and OK, but probably won't make again.
