Black-Eyed Pea Salad -- 1 cup = 2 points

Recommended Posts

I make this salad the morning of the day I'm serving it to give the salad time to marinate. Throughout the day I mix the salad. This recipe was taken from Weight Watchers Winner's Circle: 145+ favorite recipes from members, leaders, and home cooks, 2003, page 82.


Black-Eyed Pea Salad


2 T. cider vinegar

Here is a recipe I created last week that is absolutely delicious, lite and healthy, healthy. The points for the porkette and beer probably add up to .5 per 1/2 cup serving.


Savory black eyed peas



1 16-ounce bag of black-eyed peas


2 cups ham liquor from porkette


1 large red pepper, chopped


½ large red onion, chopped


3 stalks celery with leaves, chopped


1 cup diced porkette


4 chipotles with adobo sauce, deseeded and chopped


¼ t. thyme


¼ t. ground sage


¼ t. marjoram


2 bay leaves


1 bottle beer (I used Mexican)


1 T salt


chicken stock to cover



Bring ham liquor to boil. Add dried peas and turn heat off. Soak over night. Place all ingredients into crock pot, stir well and cook on low, covered for 8-10 hrs. Check liquid level if needed to cover the peas. If there is too much liquid, turn the heat on high and leave the pot uncovered for a few minutes.


Reduce heat for several more hours until ready to serve. Peas should be tender. Remove bay leaves.
