3 cups black-eyed pea home-cooked/ canned 1 medium-sized tomato finely chopped 1 small-sized red onion finely chopped 1 small-sized cucumber finely chopped 1/2 red bell pepper finely chopped 1/2 green bell pepper finely chopped 1 teaspoon finely chopped jalapeno fresh/ pickled 1/2 cup green onion finely chopped 1/2 cup cilantro finely chopped Ingredients for dressing 2 tablespoons olive oil Juice of 1/2 a lemon Zest of 1 lemon 1 large garlic clove grated 1/2 teaspoon dark brown sugar or any other type of sugar you prefer 1/2 teaspoon chili flakes Salt & pepper as per taste
Both home cooked and canned black-eyed beans are fine to be used in this recipe. If using canned beans, drain the liquid. If cooking at home, don't overcook otherwise it will turn mushy in the salad.
Adjust the quantity of seasoning as per your taste.
Any sweetener can be added to this salad but I would recommend using dark brown sugar, not only it gives a nice taste but a rich color to the salad too.
