Black Eyed Pea Salad

Black Eyed Pea Salad

Black Eyed Pea Salad

Not sure about you, but it already seems as if the New Year was ages ago. Last week I featured Collards with Bacon served up as part of my lucky New Year foods. Another among lucky foods prepared on this hopeful holiday always includes some version of black eyed peas. With the neighbors behind me having just returned from the holiday’s in Florida, I decided to prepare Black Eyed Pea Salad with the plan of sharing half the batch as a sort of welcome home while sending good luck their way.

Initially, I planned on using bacon in this Black Eyed Pea Salad. In fact, I set aside four crispy, cooked strips. As it turned out, good luck was already heading my way when the four cooked strips, not mentioning any names here, got snatched up in my kitchen, ultimately making things rather copacetic in the preparation upon later learning that two of the three high school- age daughters in the house behind me have become vegetarian or vegan over the year. Lucky me. 

Turns out, the girls loved the Black Eyed Pea Salad hastening me to share the recipe. Hope you enjoy this unintentionally lucky vegetarian, vegan salad pick of the day. Of course, if you prefer you can always add in some crispy, cooked strips of bacon, but chop them up finely before anyone coming through your kitchen snatches them up.
