Black-Eyed Pea Salad with Avocado and Jalapeno Recipe

“I've had a lot of compliments and requests for this recipe over the years. My husband loves it, and it's especially great on hot days. The salad dressing keeps the avocado from turning dark, even if you have leftovers-which doesn't happen often!” A fun alternative to pasta or potato salad. —Nancy Cariker, Bakersfield, California
