Fresh Was looking for a way to use abundant cucumbers. Loved the addition of beans. I used chick peas tarragon vinegar lime juice and fresh basil because that was what I had. Also added some halved cherry tomatoes and a hot banana pepper. Was very good easy fresh and a little different. Will make again. Pros: Good salad and good use of fresh veggies. Read More

A favorite Have made this several times and it's very good. Hubby doesn't like any kind of olives so I leave them out. I have used black beans or pinto beans (rinsed and drained) when I happened to be out of black-eyed peas It was still very good but the black beans tend to color the other items so it doesn't look as appetizing.

This is an awesome and simple salad. I used chickpeas instead of black-eyed beans and also drizzled it with sesame seed oil for a nutty flavor. Read More

Lemon and Olive Oil as a dressing is not bad. Would be better with vinegar especially a seasoned vinegar. Read More

I used chickpeas and cannellini beans instead of black-eyed peas. I also added 1/4 cup tarragon vinegar and fresh basil and tarragon to give it an italian taste as I was serving it as a side dish for chicken piccata. Next time I think I will add some diced tomatoes! Yummy! Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More
