Black-Eyed-Pea and Pasta Salad Recipe

Publisher Photo
To create a more interesting pasta salad, I added pasta to my favorite black-eyed pea salad. The result is different and delicious. Cucumber and green pepper give this picnic side dish a satisfying crunch. —Melinda Ewbank of Fairfield, Ohio

This is certainly a 5 star recipe! I used Bush's Seasoned Black Eye Peas, Vidalia onions, mini orange peppers and grape tomatoes. Olive oil and Alessi's Raspberry Vinegar and Mediterranean Basil w/No hot sauce and it is delicious! Thank you for the idea!

Oh my! This was so refreshing. I made it exactly as written. Had a kick to it, but wonderful flavors. Leftovers were also great. Don't need to change a thing. Will definately put in my recipe box to use again. Great using all the summer vegetables.
