I have made this traditional Southern dish on New Year's Eve because black-eyed peas are supposed to bring you good luck. This is a good appetizer with chips or as a side dish.
1
Combine the black-eyed peas with all the veggies. Add the avocado last.
2
Add dressing and refrigerate. If olive oil solidifies, set out for about an hour and stir.
