Let this good-luck legume bring variety and nutrition to your table.
cans (15 or 15 1/2 oz each) black-eyed peas, drained, rinsed
oz Monterey Jack cheese, cubed
medium yellow bell pepper, cut into 1-inch-long julienne strips
medium tomato, coarsely chopped
cup chopped fresh parsley
cup chopped red onion
cup reduced-calorie Italian dressing
cups torn lettuce
In medium bowl, gently mix all ingredients except lettuce. Refrigerate until serving time.
Just before serving in large bowl, place lettuce; spoon salad over lettuce. Stir just to combine.
Cheddar cheese can be substituted for the Monterey Jack. Or, if an additional guest is coming, add 8 oz Cheddar cheese cubes to extend the salad.
The crunch of iceberg lettuce is good in this salad but Bibb, romaine or a blend of greens will work.
