I had a lonely can of black eyed peas in my cupboard that I needed to use up. This was definitely healthy and had a good amt of heat. I would probably omit the celery next time as I am not a huge fan and I could do without the tomato. I really think the balsamic and mayo worked well together. I wish they had half stars as this is a 3.5 in my book for my taste. Thanks for an easy recipe PaulaG!
This salad has a lot going for it. Low in carbs, high in fiber, and tastes great while using a minimal amount of dressing. I especially like the addition of jalapeno and tabasco--gives the salad just the right amount of zip and heat. Glad I found this before summer arrives. It will be made often then and throughout the year. Thanks once more, PaulaG.
WONDERFUL and HEALTHY! I used white onion, pickled jalapeno and garlic salt. I added garlic powder, black pepper and green bell pepper. I think black olives would be good in this also. Next time I'm going to need to make 4x the amount because my Hubby and I were fighting over this in one sitting. Thanks for a new FAVORITE! Made for the Zaar Stars game.

I came to this site in March of 2004. It was then called Recipezaar. This site was the first on-line site that I ever joined. I first popped in 2003 while searching for a Peach Cobbler Recipe. In March of 2004, DH was having shoulder surgery and I was looking for a Split Pea Soup. Once again I found myself on Zaar as it came to be called. Over the years I hung out and learned from some of the best home cooks in the country, I posted over 700 recipes on the site, reviewed over 3500 recipes and posted over 3000 food photos. Over the next 10 years the site made many changes and in 2010 it was sold to to Food Network and became Food.com. Until last year we played games, talked and shared with one another. As a result of the community and the relationships I built I got to meet some wonderful people from all over the country. I also have a great number of friends that I have never meet face to face. Some of us still hang out at various places across the net. Zaar was more than a cooking community. It was an internet community of friendship. Life is an adventure ever changing.
