Although I am not a superstitious person, I call this a New Year's dip because of the "lucky" ingredients. Black-eyed peas symbolize coins and kale symbolizes folded money, which means wealth for the New Year. Also, pork symbolizes progress because pigs root forward and tomatoes symbolize health. Wealth, progress and health in a dip? Yes, please! NOTE: You can easily substitute dried black-eyed peas with canned black-eyed peas to save time.
