This recipe served us both as a dip or as a salad. Getting just the right amount of pepper flavor is a little challenge.

At home, we call this Texas caviar. I do not use pimentos. I add 2 avocados; therefore I cut out alot of the oils. Love it.

A friend of mine makes this recipe and I really love it - but I wish it didn't have all of the oil! Is there a way to lighten this up? Maybe use less dressing or substitute all of the olive and vegetable oil for something else? It's very healthy and filling up until you get to that dressing!

Loved the black eyed pea dip! Thanks & Happy New Year!

I always thought blackeyed peas tasted like chalk. I would eat a spoonful at New years dinner but only because I was told it was bad luck for the next year if you did not eat some. BUT this recipe changed my mind. I love it so much that I could just eat it with a spoon or over roasted chicken breasts. I am a true Texan now because I love BLACKEYED PEAS.

Love this recipe. Great for a summertime picnic. Just a suggestion try serving it with Fritos Scoops!

We are from Texas and fixed this for our Friend here in Canada and shared the tradition of Black-eyed peas for good luck in the New Year. Many wanted the recipe. I told them Paula Deen. Thanks for being a part of our New Year's celebration. Denise
