Since living in Florida, I’m learning more about the traditions, eating black-eyed peas during the New Year’s is one of the traditions here.

This Black-Eyed Peas Salad recipe is so delicious, healthy, and colorful. It is the perfect side dish that can be served all year round. Just like my Sweet Potato Pie and Southern-Style Collard Greens.

Black-Eyed Peas Salad Recipe

What Are Black-Eyed Peas?

Black-eyed peas are a variety of cowpeas, although they are called peas, they are really beans. They are a pale cream color with a distinctive black spot.

However here in the South, we have many varieties of black-eyed peas with a different color eye, brown, red, pink.

How To Cook Black-Eyed Peas?

You don’t need to soak black-eyed peas, but I usually soak mine overnight in cold water. Place 3/4 cup black-eyed peas in about 3 cups cold water in a pot and bring to a boil. 

Reduce heat to simmer for about 20-25 minutes. You don’t want the peas to be mushy but tender and just right for your black eye pea salad.=.
