Tried & True Tuedsay ~ Black-Eyed Peas & Sweet Corn Salsa

This yummy salsa recipe was shared with me several years ago by close friend visiting from Maryland. It's so simple. So good. Addictive. My favorite kind of recipe!

Black-Eyed Peas & Sweet Corn Salsa Recipe

Oh yum- I just need to buy feta and I have all the other ingredients. This looks awesome Mary xxx

Mel@Mellywood's Mansion said...

mmm yum, looks perfect now that the weather is warming up!

Danni Baird @ Silo Hill Farm said...

This looks wonderful and quick! I love the photos too! I'm not a feta cheese lover, would Manchego be a good substitute?

Mary ~ said...

Thank you, Danni! I think Manchego would be good! I love to experiment. This salsa would be great without the feta/alone - you could add more green onion and be sure to add some fresh cracked pepper for an added layer of flavor- maybe even some avocado. :O)

Mary ~ said...

I laughed when I read "the weather is warming up" - here in Ohio, it's getting colder and colder! Thanks for the sweet words, Mel! Hope you are have a beautiful spring day tomorrow!
