Robyn (who blogs at Add a Pinch) specializes in her savory Skillet Suppers, like Sunday Roasted Chicken, Broiled Grouper with Lemon Basil Butter, and Southern Buttermilk Fried Chicken. There are fabulous appetizers, like this Southern Caviar Dip recipe, Cranberry Chicken Bites, and Olive and Bacon Deviled Eggs (can you say, Easter Menu?).

Then desserts like Georgia Peach Crisp, Coconut Custard Pie, and Mimi’s Pecan Pie … all southern classics!

This spicy southern twist on salsa features black-eyed peas and Vadalia onion. It's full of fresh ingredients, so you know it's good for you . You can add more jalapeno if you like a spicier spread, or use less if you prefer it milder. This recipe makes a gracious plenty, but it goes quickly.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups cooked black-eyed peas (I used 2 cans of Bush's Black Eyed Peas)
  • 2 cups cooked fresh or frozen and thawed corn kernels
  • 2 medium fresh tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, chopped (I used a red bell pepper)
  • 1/2 medium Vadalia or other sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, or to taste, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tsp. chopped fresh oregano or 1/2 tsp. dried
  • 1 tsp. chopped fresh basil, or 1/2 tsp. dried
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, combine the peas, corn, tomatoes, bell pepper, onion, jalapeño, garlic, oregano, basil, and oil.
  2. To serve, use a slotted spoon to transfer the mixture to a serving bowl, discarding the excess liquid.

  2. Yum. I make a similar dish called Texas Caviar and it’s always a hit. Sometimes my hubby likes the leftovers on salad or he’ll just eat it like a side dish!
