There are as many variations of this recipe online as there are food websites. But today, I want to share my version. It is one of my favorite recipes and it is totally compliant with my plant-based lifestyle.
1 cup Roma tomatoes (chopped)
1 cup cilantro (rough chopped)
1/2 jalapeño pepper (seeded and diced)
1/2 cup red onion (diced)
2 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
1 can black-eyed peas (rinsed and drained)
1 can corn (rinsed and drained)
1/2 tsp. salt
juice of 1 lime
Start by chopping your Roma tomatoes.
Next give your cilantro a rough chop and dice the jalapeño, red onion and garlic.
To a bowl, add the rinsed and drained corn and black-eyed peas.
Finally, add the chopped vegetables and gently toss with salt and lime juice.
It tastes best, if you chill it for an hour or so and allow the flavors to meld.
This recipe makes a quart jar full and will keep in the fridge for a week or so. Well, that is if you don't devour it like I do. I toss two to three tablespoons on my salads or eat it over a plain baked potato.
OMG! It's so delish!
