Quick and Easy Black-Eyed Pea Salad

Spring is here at last and the sun is setting later with every passing day. That means more time on the run with sports practice and other fun outdoor activities.

If you're like me, you are LOVING every minute of it but maybe you aren't getting as much time at home for healthy meal prep.

I have you covered with this quick, easy and super filling salad recipe. It only take 10 minutes to put together and you'll have a beautiful and protein packed salad. This one is ideal for packing in a lunch cooler for work or snacks on the bleachers at soccer practice.

Everyone will think you have and indulgent salsa-like treat and all the while you and your kids are getting some much needed power food. I like to scoop this up with some pita chips and if you take it to the games, make sure you have plenty to share.



15 oz. can black-eyed peas

1 bell pepper

1/4 cup red onion

2 Roma tomatoes

{For the dressing}

1/4 cup natural rice vinegar

1 clove garlic, minced

1 Tbsp. olive oil

1 tsp. raw honey

I hope you and your family enjoy this salad as much as my family and I do.
