"A can of black-eyed peas is the main ingredient in this side dish that comes together fast," says Carol Forcum of Marion, Illinois. "It tastes and looks fresh, thanks to the peppers, onions, tomato and celery."
From Iowa City, Iowa, Peg Kenkel-Thomsen notes, "This salad goes wonderfully with chicken and Mexican main dishes and is great when you need something quick for a potluck," Make it for small change—a mere 43¢ per serving.
