  • Summary

    Black-eyed peans are not just for New Years! They are delicious little white beans with a mild taste and smooth texture, and as such can and should be enjoyed year-round. This simple, refreshing bean salad recipe makes a great summer side or potluck dish. I added leftover brown basmati rice and sliced avocado to make it a complete meal.

    Ingredients

    • ¼ cup fresh lime juice (about 2½ limes, juiced)
    • 1 cup chopped parsley
    • ½ cup olive oil
    • 5 cups cooked black-eyed peas (roughly 3 cups dried peas makes 5 cups cooked, see notes for cooking instructions)
    • 10 scallions, roughly chopped
    • 1 red bell pepper, stemmed, seeded, and finely chopped
    • 1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, chopped
    • 1 medium cucumber, seeded and finely chopped
    • 2 serrano peppers or 1 habanero or Scotch bonnet chile, stemmed, seeded, and minced
    • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    • Cooked brown basmati rice (optional)
    • Sliced avocado (optional)
