This year winter was extremely cold. Finally the temperatures are warming up and Spring is just around the corner! That means more salads on the menu. Deborah’s black eyed beets salad is just perfect for upcoming warm weather. I like black eyed peas in salads and give it a try for Food Blogger’s Recipe Swap event.

How to make Black Eyed Peas Beets Salad?

Black-eyed peas beets salad is an easy recipe and if one has cooked beets and cooked black-eyed peas or canned peas handy, salad comes together in matter of minutes. Just toss peas and beets together with a vinaigrette and salad is ready to serve.

I cooked dry peas at home and steamed beet, which is the time consuming part of the preparation. However, make it semi homemade by using canned peas and cooked beets from the supermarket. It is great salad for weeknights and goes well with almost any cuisine.

A healthy and tasty summer salad with beets and black-eyed peas.

Course: Side Dish
Cuisine: American
Keyword: Beets Salad, Black-eyed Peas Saald, Healthy Salad, Side Dish, Summer Salad
Servings: 2
Ingredients
  • ½ cup dried Black Eyed Peas
  • 1 medium sized Beetroot
  • ½ small Red Onion diced
  • 1 Garlic Clove minced
  • 1- 2 tbsp Rice Wine Vinegar (I used 1 tbsp)

Instructions
  1. Wash and cook black-eyed peas with 3 cups of water.

  6. In a small bowl whisk together minced garlic, vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper.
  7. In a serving dish take beets, black-eyed peas and onions. Drizzle vinaigrette and chopped cilantro and toss.
