Black Eyed Pea Salad

IMG_5383

I was in the mood for a new salad, since I tend to stick with the same old combination. I tossed black eyed peas with other robust flavors such as garlic sun-dried tomatoes, lemon, and parsley. The fiber and protein-rich black eyed peas make this salad worthy of an entire meal. Enjoy!

Black Eyed Peas: contain 5.6 grams of fiber per 1/2 cup dried peas, are packed with heart-healthy potassium, are low in fat and calories, and contain 6.7 grams of protein per 1/2 cup dried peas. They reduce the risk of heart disease, lower cholesterol, support healthy hair, muscles, nails, and skin, and prevent diabetes and depression.
