Easy Black Eyed Pea Salad Recipe | Vegan salad with detailed photo and video recipe – This is super easy black eyed pea salad recipe in about 15 minutes. Black eyed peas or lobia are very popular beans in India and I regularly make lobia or black eyed pea curry that is super flavorful. These beans are bursting with protein and vital nutrients. If you are a vegetarian or vegan, this is the perfect food for you especially since it is high in plant protein.

This salad is light and refreshing but also filling and comforting. It’s the perfect appetizer for a summertime gathering.

Basically, a bunch of chopping, a little mixing, and that’s it! And with bright, happy colors like the ones in this recipe, chopping and cutting can be therapeutic.

Once all of the chopping and mixing is done, you can serve it right away, or refrigerate and let everything mingle a bit until ready to serve. Personally, the salad does seem to taste better when it’s been given time to warm up a bit instead of straight out of the fridge.

This recipe is a basic rendition of an old favorite. You can always add or substitute other types of peppers, onions or herbs. Maybe spice it up with a jalapeno, poblano or banana peppers for a bit of a kick? However you mix it, this Blackeye Pea Salad recipe is one to keep in your repertoire of quick and easy dishes. And it doesn’t hurt that it is yummy too!
