Black-eyed peas salad

black-eyed beans

I got this recipe from The Untamed Cook, I didn’t know how to prepare raw black-eyed peas, I was looking at internet, the best and simple recipe, and then I found her recipe Black Eyed Beans Salad. You should soak the peas overnight, I know it would takes a long time, what I did is… I soaked it early in the morning at 07:00 am, and I prepared it at 19:00 pm for our dinner as appetizer (or you could do it vice versa). My husband loved this salad.
