Black-Eyed-Pea Dip

Lucky Salsa

Happy New Year! The beginning of a new year often signifies a fresh start for most of us. Black-eyed peas have traditionally been a way to ring in the new year, signifying luck for the coming year. We have taken this traditional food and given it a bit of a simple twist, using it as a salsa and mixing it with a colorful combination of peppers, tomatoes, and corn. It is packed not only with luck, but yummy goodness as well!


  • 3 cans black eyed peas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can fire roasted tomatoes (can also use diced, fresh)
  • 1 can sweet yellow corn
  • ½ c. diced purple onion
  • ½ c. diced bell peppers, any color
  • ¼ c. cilantro, diced
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 2/3 c light Italian dressing
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Toss all ingredients together.
  2. Refrigerate for at least an hour for fullest flavor.                                                                                                                                                                    Note: Can be served immediately, if short on time!
