New Year’s Black-Eyed Pea Salsa

December 31, 2011

Hi friends! Long time, no see!

I had a great Christmas holiday with family and friends, and there’s just a few hours left of 2011! I have a lot to share with you in the next few weeks as we prepare for Maggie’s arrival in mid-February and I finish up my Thirty Before 30 list before my big 30th birthday on February 6. The beginning of 2012 should be really interesting.

But before we jump in with everything, I wanted to share this yummy recipe my friend Mary sent me in preparation of New Year’s Day festivities. I was looking to do something with black-eyed peas, and I checked to see if she had any suggestions. She sent along her mom’s recipe, similar to a Colorado or Texas Caviar… a fresh, yummy salsa with the right amount of beans and spices. I wanted to be sure to share it with you in case you too wanted to whip this up before you celebrate the new year.

Black-Eyed Peas Salsa
3 cans black-eyed peas with bacon and jalapeno, drained
1 large onion, minced
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 cup picante sauce
1/4 cup vinegar
2 bay leaves
3/4 cup Italian dressing
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup salad olives
  • Mix together and let marinate, the longer the better (but can be as short as several hours).
  • Serve with chips.

Have a wonderful New Year’s! Thank you for your support and love in 2011… I’m excited to start 2012 and share it with you.
