In the Kitchen with Brian and Lisa: Black-eyed Pea Salsa

by | Jul 19, 2012

WRAL reporter Brian Shrader and our own Lisa Prince feature seasonal recipes in their Got to Be Good Cookin’ segment using ingredients grown and available right here in North Carolina.

This week, Brian and Lisa create a simple Black-eyed Pea Salsa, or as some people call it, “Carolina Caviar.” The bright reds, yellows and greens in this salsa reflect the bright colors of summer, and the taste is sure to make it a hit at your next party.

To make the salsa, combine black-eyed peas, Roma tomatoes, avocados, a yellow pepper, purple onion, zesty Italian dressing, lime juice, salt and a jalapeno in a serving bowl. If you want a little more spice, Lisa recommends adding an additional jalapeno. Once you’ve combined all the ingredients, place the bowl in your refrigerator for 30 minutes to marinate. Serve the salsa with chips.
