Ready in 15 minutes!

Lucky Black Eyed Pea Salad for your NYE Table.

 

Simple and hearty black eyed pea salad with chopped vegetables, fresh herbs, pomegranate arils, and a bright Mediterranean dressing. Keep it vegan or add a sprinkle of creamy feta to finish! The perfect lunch or side next to your favorite protein.

 

I don’t know if eating black eyed peas at the start of a new year brings good luck, but I usually find myself up kicking off the month of January with a big pot of this Greek-style black eyed peas recipe. I make it more for the fact that it’s such an appropriate, and satisfying warm-your-belly stew on a cold winter night. No one is ever mad about it!

But I will confess a little love for black eyed peas in general. These small savory beans with the one black eye are nutrient-dense, packing antioxidants and a good amount of fiber and protein. An luckily, these beans are cheap and convenient. You can find them in your local grocery store in the dry or canned beans aisles.

If you haven’t cooked with them much, today’s Mediterranean black eyed peas salad recipe is a great start! I make it often for lunch, to mix in a falafel bowl, or next to things like Italian baked Chickencodsalmon kabobs, or even rack of lamb (I mean, if you’re going meaty, it’s nice to have something bright to cut through the richness).
