Needed a bit more flavor. Even used fresh lemons from our tree! Just added garlic salt and more black olive than suggested. It's good after it sits for at least a few hours. Would be great picnic salad. We r having steak and baked potatoes tonight. I will skip the potato (Carbs) and have this salad with my steak. Thank you!
Cucumber & Black-Eyed Pea Salad
An easy salad to serve with grilled chicken or steak for supper or on a bed of greens for a satisfying lunch. Substitute white beans or chickpeas for the black-eyed peas if you prefer.

I have been making a similar version of this recipe for years.
I use seasoned rice vinegar, fresh basil and fresh parsley and omit the feta. I also added black beans for more contrast and fiber. Excellent salad.
I made this tonight for supper. I added tomatoes and left out onion. I served it on a bed of greens on a whole grain pita. YUM! Very good!
I made this recipe without any substitutions. It was the hit of my Labor Day/Engagement Party. It was the first time I have ever used black-eyed peas. They added an interesting color to the salad and were quite flavorful.
Lemon and Olive Oil as a dressing is not bad. Would be better with vinegar, especially a seasoned vinegar.
