Zesty Hoppin John Salad

Zesty Hoppin John Salad


"I created this salad version of Hoppin John by combining a number of ingredients from other Hoppin John recipes and adding cilantro, tomatillos, and lemon juice for a zesty flavor. The salad is just as good without red pepper for those with discerning palates. Also as an alternative, a favorite hot sauce can be substituted for the red pepper with each individual serving. I like to add a dash of Louisiana-style cayenne pepper sauce to mine."

Excellent recipe, I also added avocado to this! Nice summer salad!

Terrific!!! I had to sub in for the black-eyed peas but I wanted to try it& had everything else. So I used 1/3 of each: Lima beans, white beans& chick peas. Makes a large salad!

This recipe is so refreshing! I made it according to the recipe,except I opted out of the cucumber, because I don't really like it. This recipe is a great jumping-off point. Next time I make it...
