I recently posted a Black-Eyed Pea & Rice Salad (I loooove that salad!) so I thought today would be a great day to talk about Black-Eyed Peas, how to shop for them and how to cook them.
Talk about good down-home plain cooking, I make black eyed peas from time to time, and with New Year’s coming up (and a bag of peas I’ve been meaning to use up) now is the time~!
I just recently learned the history of Cowboy Caviar – along with the original recipe. The earliest recipes were basically pickled black-eyed peas with a bit of onion and garlic! While we’ve come a long way since then with all kinds of additions, bottled salad dressing just isn’t one I approve of! But then you probably already knew that if you’re a regular reader! Simple dressings like this are so easy and inexpensive to make at home and there are no worries about strange additives.
