I just took a taste to see how it is blending and this is delicious. I have to add the tomatoes and bacon and I know this is going to be a hit for New Year's this year!

I made this today but used dry beans instead of canned. It was very good and refreshing. I added a hot pepper in addition to the sweet one and really liked the flavor with the fresh mint.

I love cold bean salads, especially in the summer when it's too hot to cook...but, people are active and hungry!! This recipe is good, it's easy to fix (although i used dried black-eyed peas, after soaking them overnight)..it feeds a crowd..and, it contains Bacon!!!

I made this for our New Years Dinner for guests and it was a big hit. Had to make 2 extra copies. Very flavorful and easy to make. I will definitely make this again.
