I have tried this recipe in the past after seeing it in one of the many recipe book that I have purchased of your. This recipe is a WOW, absolutely unusual and delightful. Even kids eat their peas with out whinning. Thanks for bring this back to my mind as I was wondering what will be for supper tonight. Love "reading" your books, please keep up the good work. Julie G.

My grandmother made this dish for Mother's Day a few weeks ago. Since dinner was going to be a little late, we started diving into this dish as an appetizer. It was DELICIOUS! We ate it on tortilla chips as a salsa instead of as a salad. Can't wait to make it myself.

I made this thinking it was the black eyed pea "dip" but mistakingly made the black eyed pea "salad". Its not bad but the dip is much better. This is very sweet and the veggies tend to get mushy because all of the sugar. If youre looking for a great appetizer that everyone will love, try the black eyed pea dip ,not this "salad".
