Awesome. Full of unique flavor! Love the black eyed peas in this! I left out the celery and used a fresh jalapeno. Delicious as a salad or with chips.

Very tasty. I did add extra vinegar because we like it more sour than sweet. Might be good with a bit of taco seasoning too.

great side dish with pork chops. I omitted the celery, added tomatoes, jalapenos and used shoe peg corn. very nice. we loved it. good with chips or right out of the bowl.
