Black Eyed Peas Salad

With chock full of black eyed peas, crunchy vegetables and apples this salad has a good amount of substance, making us feel full even before we start on our main course 👌. This is a beautiful colorful salad that my friend Shalini made when we met for lunch one time. The key to making the black eyed pea salad look so pretty is the various colored bell peppers, green celery, pink radish, and red apples. Give it a try.
