This recipe was the result of me sifting through the leftovers I had and wanting some pasta salad. I love black-eyed peas, but whenever I make them we always have leftovers because I get tired of eating them plain. This is a great way to use up those leftovers, and a few other random ingredients you may have lying around. I'll give tips for some substitutions, but definitely make this your own using what you like. I'll post my vegetarian black eyed pea recipe separately.
