Avocado And Black Eyed Pea Salsa Reviews

  • I could not stop eating this - it was SO good Left out the green onions due to personal taste and cut the amount of oil to make it a little healthier. Ive never heard of "shoepeg" corn before and I found it with the other regular canned corn. I think using regular yellow corn would change the taste so find shoepeg if possible This might be my new "go-to" party appetizer. LOVED it Thanks for sharing

  • This was very good. I couldnt find black eyed peas, so I substituted black beans. Ill definitely make it again, but next time Ill spice it up with with some jalapenos or chili peppers to add some heat for us.

  • Very healthy and delicious. Loaded with fiber and protein, but tastes wonderful. I did not have the required vinegar, so I used white wine and a little bit of white vinegar. I also doubled the spices because Im a spice nut. Cut down Olive Oil by a little more than half. The recipe didnt need to be changed, I just did to acclimate it to our dietary needs. Simply wonderful

  • I substituted basil for the cilantro, cutting it down to 1/4 cup due to personal preference. You cant understand how good this was unless you could see how distended my belly is :)

  • This was really good - I usually hate black eyed peas, but weve always had to eat them on NY so this year I found a way to make them go down easier I couldnt find shoepeg corn, so I just used regular and it worked fine.

  • Made according to recipe. Was very good. We had it as a salad for New years, and then used the leftovers as a salsa on some tacos. Everyone liked it

  • Quick and easy and delicious I served with blue corn chips. The leftovers were even better, so let it sit as long as possible.

  • No complaints about this one...Absolutely delicious I wouldnt change a thing.

  • Great in summer, spring, fall, and winter We will make this often.

  • This is delicious It was so easy to make and tastes really fresh and healthy.

  • I made this for New Years and thought it was a great way to incorporate black eyed peas in a new and tasty way. It was a hit with everyone - I think Ill make this a tradition each year

  • Left out cilantro b/c I dont like it & used chili powder b/c I didnt have cumin. It was excellent

  • I doubled the beans and liquid ingredients and added fresh lime juice, ohhh yum Very good with tortilla chips.

  • I just made this and it is delicious Im having a hard time waiting for the hour for it to chill to dig in Next time I may not add quite all the dressing to be a little lighter.

  • Have made this twice now and everyone just raves about it. Its great with steak as a side dish at a BBQ and with homemade chips as an appetizer.

  • YUMMY So healthy Thank you so much for this recipe, I will be making it again and again and again. :)

  • Easy, healthy, and delicious. People can be a little skepitcal to try at first, but once they do, they love it

  • Good but I wanted a more avocado-y salad so next time I will double the avocados. Also I think the spices need to be AT LEAST doubled.

  • Absolutely delicious and filled with lots of flavor and healthy ingredients. I did add a can of black beans and 2 jalapeno peppers. I serve it with scoops. Will definitely be making this throughout the year Thanks, wusz for sharing your recipe

  • Absolutely my favorite and I added jalapeos.

  • This is an amazing, flavorful, delicious dish, and after the first couple of bites, I discarded my chips and dug in with a fork. SOOOO good.

  • Ive made similar salsas but this was my first time using black eyed peas. I amped up the spice with a chopped Serrano pepper. This is a winner

  • Love this. Add some minced jalepeno for a little more kick and I double the recipe because its gone so quickly. Great for NY for the black eyed pea haters. Being vegan too is always a bonus :)

  • Loved, loved, loved this recipe. The only change I made was I used black beans instead of black-eyed peas. My husband and I couldnt stop eating it. I would highly recommend trying this recipe

  • I find that this needs more flavour.

  • Great recipe just as written I made this on New Years Day to get my lucky peas. Making this almost 2x a week now in summer for gatherings So great with multingrain chips

  • This was a such a great and healthy recipe Served at our New Years party and it was a hit.

  • I love this I served it as a main-dish salad for dinner, and it was a hit. I omitted the cilantro, as we dont like it. I think Ill add some diced jalapeno peppers next time to spice it up a bit more, and maybe some chopped cucumber. But it was delicious as is, too.

  • Didnt use cilantro because people in the house dont like it. The only way I love black eyed peas is in this salsa It was great Everyone liked it even though no one looks forward to black eyed peas on New Years.

  • This is wonderful. We had with pita chips. I also spooned some on top of the chicken breast, supurb

  • Love how different this is from any other salsa out there, and everyone at the party raved so its a definite keeper I did omit green onion, reduce cilantro and olive oil based on personal preferences, but I dont think it changed the overall idea of the salsa.

  • This was da bomb You have to try it Only thing I would do next time is add more cilantro and avocados. I may even try to add some jalapenos.

  • I too had never heard of shoepeg corn, but now I wouldnt want anything else, unless of course I was strapped, itd still be good with other types of corn. You could really substitute any bean or veggie, the red wine vinegar dressing is where its at This will be my third new years making this, not to mention other time throughout Enjoy

  • Great recipe. First dish to be devoured at our NYE party. Shoepeg corn is just a smaller kernel, white sweet corn. My grocer doesnt stock shoepeg, so I chose Del Monte Gold & White Super Sweet canned corn as a substitute.

  • This is delicious....the family licked the bowl

  • Omitted olive oil - added 1 serano pepper - used rotel diced tomotoes with lime and cilantro - used balsamic vinegar instead of red wine vinegar plus used corn blue chips and black beans instead of black eyed peas

  • This. was. amazing. super easy, super tasty. and i was surprised as how well the avocados held up

  • Great salsa I was out of romas so I added a can of dice tomatoes and green chilies and am I glad I did. This is a keeper.

  • My husband devoured this with chips

  • Delicious next time Im going to decrease the cilantro a bit, but that is just a personal preference, recipe turned out great as is. Makes a a lot

  • This is amazing. I will use this again. It was tasty before I put the liquid dressing on it .

  • Ive made this so many times since New Years - its fabulous Even my mother (whos always choked down her teaspoon of black-eyed peas on New Years Day loves this). The only changes I makes are halving the liquids.

  • Ive made this at least ten times Delicious. This recipe stands alone, but I did make some changes. Added a can of black beans and two tablespoons lime juice. I also used Rice Wine instead of the Red Wine. I added northern beans once and it was also delicious. Cant go wrong with this salsa - on chicken, on scoops, on a spoon..

  • Im not a big fan of cilantro so used only a small amount. I coked my own black eyed peas. This recipe is really, really good.

  • Great summer recipe. It was a wee bit bland for my taste, so I doubled the cumin and garlic and added some chipotle for a little heat. Next time I think Ill use lime juice instead of vinegar.

  • Made this for New Years Day Party as it is a tradition in my husbands family to have black eyed peas on new years. So good Everyone loved it. Will probably use this every New Years going forward & a few times during the year too

  • This is an awesome recipe I have made it exactly as is multiple times and every time people rave about it and it is always all gone (even if I double the recipe) It also keeps very well overnight so can make ahead. It is not spicy at all but for those who would rather have spice you could easily add some fresh jalapeo for that extra kick.

  • Everyone in my family loved it The only change I made was leave out the cilantro and added chopped jalapeos.

  • Finally found a way to eat black eyed peas for New Years Day that I actually enjoyed Very tasty as written but may add something (jalapeos maybe) to spice it up a little next time.

  • Excellent It was a big hit at a family potluck. Added juice of 1 lime.

  • Delicious

  • Great recipe Made this for New Years and daughter and husband love it. I added a extra can of black eye peas that I drained and rinsed. I used 1 small lemon on the cut avocado. Since we do not like cilantro I substituted fresh parsley. Served with Scoops Yummy

  • This was excellent, and I dont really like black eye peas. I couldnt find shoe peg corn so I substitute yellow corn. It was really good. Im going to try this recipe with black beans the next time.

  • We made it for the Super Bowl Party and everybody loved it.We too, thought it needed a bit more spice so we added a minced Chipotle Pepper that we happened to have for the Chipotle Mayo we were making for Salmon Sliders.

  • This has become a favorite in our household. I found it because I was looking for a good black eyed pea recipe for the New Year (black-eyed peas for good luck). Its great. We take it to Super Bowl parties. Its a great side with a spicy chili because its more cooling but very flavorful

  • Crowd favorite

  • This was a hit my family party. I added some minced jalapeos for a bit of a kick. Great appetizer m

  • I made this for a New Years Eve Party. I was surprised how much there was. It all was eaten. Everybody loved it and I was asked to bring it to our next gathering The only change I made was I used organic frozen corn. (It needs to be organic to avoid GMOs) and I added half a jalapeno.

  • No changes, it is great as is. Will definitely make again. It was a real it at the party I brought it to as well

  • Delish This is a great recipe & you can make it your own by adding your favorite spices and veggie /bean combos. I omitted the oil, added diced jalapeno, red onion, chili powder, fresh minced garlic & the juice of 1/2 lime. I always let my set up for 24 hours.

  • Used less cilantro and added small yellow, red and orange peppers. Loved it along with others who I shared New Years Day dinner. I doubled recipe and it was devoured by the 7 of us.
