How to make black eyed pea salad
First, gather your ingredients.
For tastiest results, always use the best quality ingredients you have access to. To make this black eyed pea salad, you will need the following:
- black eyed peas
- English cucumber
- red bell pepper
- cherry tomatoes
- red onion
- olive oil
- red wine vinegar

Making the dressing
Make the dressing by combining all of the dressing ingredients in a mason jar and then shake well to emulsify.
Alternatively, you can just make the dressing in the mixing bowl and whisk it all together. Making it separate and pouring it over the top works best, in my opinion.
