This is a nice hearty salsa that takes minimal prep work, aside from the chopping.

  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, chopped into small bits (seeds removed if you don’t want your face to evaporate)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 (8 oz.) bottle zesty Italian dressing
  • juice from 1/2 a lime
  • 1 (15 oz.) can black beans, drained
  • 1 (15 oz.) can black-eyed peas, drained
  • 1 bunch chopped fresh cilantro
This was the first time I'd had black-eyed peas in a long time. Love their subtle flavor!

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Cover and chill in the fridge for 2 hours to let the flavors blend. Serve with tortilla chips or spoon over tacos.
