Creamy Pea Salad - This salad is a nice change from the typical potato or pasta salads. It requires very little cooking and a little bit of chopping - it could easily be a no cook recipe if you buy precooked bacon! It doesn't get much easier than that! by lovebakesgoodcakes, via Flickr
Black Eyed Pea Salad Recipe - red bell pepper, green pepper, scallions, garlic, olive oil, vinegar, parsley and black eye peas - GREAT side dish! We also like it as a dip. Make ahead of time and refrigerate - will last for several days. Recipe adapted from the famous Hattie B's Hot Chicken restaurant in Nashville, TN
