Fruited Black-Eyed Pea Salad

Fruited Black-Eyed Pea Salad
This is a particularly refreshing summer Entrée Salad. Perfect for your potluck, picnic, or lunchbox, and easy to throw together. It was adapted from a recipe I found in Woman's Day magazine a few years ago.

Fruited Black-Eyed Pea Salad
2 cans (15 oz ea) rinsed and drained Black-eyed Peas (or 3 cups home prepared)
1 cup frozen Corn, thawed (rinse in sieve under warm water)
1 cup diced Celery
3 Scallions, minced
2 Apples, chopped
1 can (11 oz) Mandarin Oranges, drained

toss with dressing:
1/2 cup Fat Free or Regular Simply Greek Dressing (from June 3)
1 teaspoon sugar

Chill, Toss & Serve

  1. Love the look of this! Something different but sounds really delicious :-)

    1. Thank you! It is surprisingly good - it even gets good reviews from some who don't usually like fruit with savory food : )

  2. I posted about Black Eyed Peas today, too! LOVE this idea!


Please, DO chime in! : )

If you want to share a link to a pertinent and supportive post of your own that directly relates to my post (if, for instance, you also have a great vegan pancake recipe, or a post about Christmas) I don't mind a bit!

I encourage any questions about methods, measurements, or cooking times, and comments about typos, broken links, mistakes, omissions, etc. I also welcome thoughtful questions - even if you disagree with me.

I often take a few days to post your comment, and a few after that to reply. Please don't think I'm ignoring you if my response is slow - I'm just not always connected to technology. (at the current moment, I cannot manage to reply to posts on my blog at all -despite repeated attempts to do so. I DO appreciate your comments, and hopefully this glitch will be fixed soon! )

Delighted to have you here! Post away!
