Gluten-Free Blackeyed Pea Salad with Tomato for Garnish

 

A refreshing change for a side dish or lunch, this high-fiber, gluten-free blackeyed pea salad has lots of flavor and nutrition.

I like to use canned peas, since that’s the easiest, but you can use fresh or frozen black-eyed peas, cooked and cooled.

To make it even healthier, use low-fat or fat-free mayonnaise, which will reduce the calories by as much as one-fourth.

A salad like this can be served many ways!  The simplest would be by itself in a bowl — always a good choice!  On a bed of fresh, crisp lettuce would be tasty, too.  It can also be used as filling for a stuffed tomato or a cucumber “boat.”  It’s even good to dip into with tortilla chips for a snack!

What would you try with it?
