Hoppin’ John Salad
Source: Adapted from Recipesource.com
Servings: Serves 6-8 as a side.
Prep Time: 15 minutesCook Time: 45 minutes
Instructions: Cook rice to package directions and allow to cool to room temperature (from the fridge is fine too). Whisk, jalapeno, jalapeno "juice", cilantro, garlic, salt, lemon juice, olive oil, and black pepper to make a dressing. While those flavors mingle, stir together black-eyed peas, rice, onion, and celery. Toss with dressing. When ready to serve, adjust seasoning with more salt and pepper if necessary, stir in crumbled bacon, and garnish with more cilantro.
Notes: The long cooking time with this recipe is almost exclusively the fault of the brown rice. Use long-grain white rice if you're impatient.
