New Year’s Day

As most of my family knows, I am all about traditions on New Year’s Day. One tradition we follow is having black eyed peas and pork for our meal; as it brings good luck for the coming year. I researched origins of this tradition and after reading several accounts I settled on this one.

This year I wanted something a little different, so I made a salad featuring black-eyed peas. It turned out to be very flavorful and delicious!

The salad was even better the second day, as all of the flavors had soaked in.
