I combined the dressing ingredients together for this recipe, gathered the salad ingredients, then realized I did not have a can of black eyed peas. The dressing was already made, other ingredients chopped, so I decided to sub a can of chickpeas for the black eyed peas. The dressing is so good in this that I do believe you could use any kind of pea or bean you wantin this salad. Allowed to marinate a few hours in the frige to combine the flavors, this is one awesome salad. I loved the use of the mint and would not leave it out. The combination of colors and flavors is wonderful. I used only one large clove of garlic and felt it was plenty. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe, JanuaryBride!

This is quick and easy to make, and used ingredients I had readily on hand...always a plus! I think it tasted better after sitting overnight, but really liked it more at room temperature than cold. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT Challenge.

Very good - actually the 1st time I've made a BEPea salad! I did not include the mint as I don't care for the flavor too much, but I didn't miss it. Thought the flavor was great and DH loved it chilled, while I liked it better at room temperature. Thanks for posting this quick and easy recipe, I'll be making it again. Made for ZWT7 AFRICA and the HOT PINK LADIES!

We really enjoyed this colorful, flavorful salad last night. I followed ingredients/directions as posted and included the mint. I used seasoned salt as you suggested for the dressing. This was really good. I'd make it again. I doubled the ingredients to make more salad with no problems. Thanks! Made for ZWT7

I'd never tried black-eyed peas before, and this was a wonderful way to try them. The lemon and parsley gave it a light fresh flavor- often bean salads can feel heavy, but this one doesn't. I skipped the mint (don't care for it) and the tomatoes (not in season), and added some chopped orange bell pepper for color and crunch. Thanks for a great lunch salad!

I found this even better the next day. I used freshly squeezed lemon juice, sea salt, also a little extra white sugar, grape tomatoes, flat leaf parsley, no mint either plus the rest! Made for Veggie Swap 26 ~ September 2010.
