Black-Eyed Pea Salsa / Relish

“Call it a it a it a salsa...or call it a side dish...I call it delicious! A friend of mine got this recipe from "The Pioneer Woman cooks" website, but I've changed a few things and added some of my own stuff. Even if you don't like Black-Eyed Peas, you'll like this! Even my little girl gobbles it up when I make it.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 1. In a large bowl (because this makes a lot!), combine oil, vinegar, mustard, sugar, celery seed, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined.
  2. 2. Add celery, green onions, bell pepper, cucumber, jalapeno, and cilantro. Mix into dressing until well covered.
  3. 3. Add the corn and peas (make sure the cans are drained and rinsed). Mix well.
  4. 4. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour, but it tastes better if you let it sit a little longer.
  5. I will use this as a topping for grilled chicken, or you can eat it like a dip (by serving it with corn-chips). I've even added twisty pasta to it and made it into a pasta salad. Enjoy!
