Black eye peas Corn Salsa/ Salad

Could not decide whether to call it salsa or salad!! What would you call it? I was making a salad and then my kids picked up the pita chips (that’s what I had at home) and started digging into it . 

I guess when you have the chips it is salsa and when you don’t it’s salad. Either ways it is refreshing and satisfying. 

Black eye peas is a lucky new year food in Southern  United States. They believe that if you eat black eye peas on New Year’s Day, it brings prosperity and good luck. 

Besides prosperity, it is high in calcium, folate, manganese, and phosphorus. 


2 cups black eye peas 

1 cup corn

1 cup chopped cucumbers 

1/2 cup chopped tomatoes

2 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp lemon juice

Chopped cilantro and cilantro leaves for garnish.

Salt/ black salt ( I used black salt as I love it’s flavor)

1/2 tsp pepper powder
