Szechuan Black-Eyed Pea Salad

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Enjolinfam

This salad tastes great wrapped in tortillas or served over baby spinach that's been sauteed in a small amount of olive oil. Found this recipe in Vegetarian Times. It won first place in a recipe contest and was submitted by someone named Laura McAllister.

* 7/31/08 edit--This was so MUCH better the next day. Took the left overs to work and it went over really well. It really needs time for the flavors to meld well.**This was quite tasty. I thought the bell peppers came through a little too strong, however. I had to sub habenero peppers for the jalapenos because the current restrictions. This was great on its own, but I also wrapped in a tortilla with pepper jack cheese and grilled on my panini press and it was amazing!
