Do you like em?
You KNOW we have to eat them don't you?
I mean, what else will assure you of having a great New Year?
So, in the spirit of having to eat these things, I have come up with what I think is a pretty darn good recipe!
Black-eyed pea salsa.
Here ya go!
(I've also added a few must have kitchen tools for your New Year!)
Start with these ingredients:
chop a green onion or scallion
and a handful of cilantro
drain some black-eyed peas (leave a bit of the sauce)
Skin a cucumber
half an avocado
here's how you take the seed out. Stab the seed with the edge of a knife
twist and pull out!
Then spoon out the avocado
and cut the avocado into cubes
Peel a red onion and cut into quarters.
Now. This chopper is a MUST have in your kitchen. You get it at Bed, bath and beyond.
(I only used half of the onion)
Take two cloves of garlic.
Use this MUST have garlic peeler
You put the clove in the peeler and just roll
It comes out like this
Take another MUST have tool, your garlic press and press the garlic
It now looks like this
This is a silicone flat spoon. Y'all, this thing is amazing for mixing anything.
mix it all up.
Now take your lemon or lime squeezer and squeeze two limes.
add sea salt flakes, pepper and some garlic powder
pour about 2 tbs. of good balsamic
and 3 tbs. of good EVOO.
Let it marinade for about 2 hours and enjoy with some homemade tortilla chips!!!
