Serves 4

2 cups cooked black-eyed peas (we suggest cooking with chicken stock, bacon, onion and chopped garlic)
2 tablespoons small diced carrots
2 tablespoons small diced zucchini
2 tablespoons small diced tomato
2 tablespoon small diced yellow squash
1 teaspoon small diced jalapeno
2 teaspoons chopped cilantro
1/3 cup Mustard Sage Vinaigrette, recipe to follow
Salt to taste

Combine all ingredients in serving bowl. Season with salt and serve chilled.

1 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon lime juice
4 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons malt vinegar
¼ cup olive oil
1 tablespoon sage, chopped fine
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper

In a bowl, combine the first four ingredients by stirring. In a slow, steady stream incorporate the salad oil. Add the chopped sage and season with salt and pepper.

Or you could just pop into Fearing’s and let exec chef Eric Dreyer make it for you instead.
