New Years Black-Eyed Pea Salad

Friday, December 31, 2010

Hey everyone!

Sorry for the long holiday hiatus! Just before Thanksgiving we got the news that we are taking a team to Greece and then we had the holidays, a death in the family, and a lot of things got crazy! But now I'm back and I have an awesome vegetarian treatment for your New Year's "lucky" black-eyed peas.

I'm generally not one to follow such traditions, but I am one to base a weekly menu around whats on sale... and black-eyed peas are on the menu. I thought this recipe would be pretty good... but I was shocked when I sampled it and I tasted BACON. I kid you not, it tastes like there's at least a 1/2 lb. of bacon in this salad!.

note: this bowl was filled to the brim when I started "tasting" it.  :)

Below is the recipe with my notes in parentheses, followed by the link to the original recipe as it appears at
