Every bite of this black eyed pea salad is full of bold, fresh flavors. It's easy to make in about 10 minutes and can be served plain or as a dip for chips.


  • 1 yellow bell pepper, diced
  • ¼ cup diced red onion
  • 2 ½ cups black eyed peas
  • 1 ½ cups diced cucumber (about 1 cucumber)
  • 1 jalapeno, diced
  • 2 roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • ⅓ cup chopped cilantro


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper


  1. Make the dressing: in a small bowl, stir together the olive oil, white wine vinegar, honey, lime juice, salt and pepper.
  2. Mix the salad: add the salad ingredients to a medium bowl and toss with the dressing. Taste and season with additional salt and pepper as desired.
  3. Serve: for best flavor, cover and chill in the fridge for 2-3 hour (or overnight) before serving. Can be served plain or as a dip for chips (highly recommended)!
