i Like this Recipe so good.
Needed an easy black eyed pea recipe for new years. Recipe was good but bland for me added about a tbsp red wine vinegar, salt and about 1 tsp garlic powder. It was great with the added ingredients!
Needs some tweeting Some thing could be improved. It get very watery the next day because of the cucumbers and it lacks flavor. I would make this again but next time I think I would salt the cucumbers for a few hours before hand so they would lose a lot of their water. This would help the overalll flavor of the dish as well. This would be a great picnic dish...serve the same day!
This was good fresh, but the next day was too soggy.
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 don't think it's fair to change a recipe and then rate it on the changes I made, so the 4 star rating is for the original recipe. I made it exactly as written except that I used black beans (we love them and they add extra fiber), I left out the onion because I thought it would overpower the other flavors, and I forgot the black olives. The dressing was too bland. After tasting, I used other reviewers suggestions and added grated radishes, tarragon vinegar, tarragon, and Italian seasoning. It still needed some salt, so I added just a bit, and the result was a 5 star salad. My husband is not a big fan of cucumbers, but he loved this. It was delicious and will become a regular on my menu planner. I may add a little more feta and maybe some jicama for an occasional change in the future.
