"The hardest thing about making this blackeyed pea salad recipe was finding some blackeyed peas!"
I went to three of the four large supermarkets in town(Courtenay, British Columbia) before I found one lonely, dented can in the canned pea section.
I guess this item is more in demand south of the border. You can also use dried peas if they are available. They will require overnight soaking but it is a healthier option than using canned peas.
Another dish you can use blackeyed peas for is chili-you can use them along with kidney beans or on their own. They are all good for you-lots of fiber.
This is a very versatile salad and you can tweak it any way you wish such as using a bottled oil/vinegar type salad dressing rather than the one shown below.
You can add more vegetables as well and maybe some dried herbs such as thyme or dill.
