  • Cooking Tip from LA COCINA GOYA
  • Your most flavorful bean salad: To help the flavor of the dressing make its way inside the bean (instead of just flavoring the surface), heat the dressing until warm before mixing with the beans (a 1 minute zap in the microwave will do the trick). Then, mix and refrigerate until cold.

This is so easy and so good! I rinse the beans to try and reduce the sodium. I couldn't find the Goya seasoning, so I bought a different Spanish style seasoning and it tasted great! I highly recommend this and it's great for parties when you need to bring a dish.

I didn't like this one very much. Took it to a potluck at work and apparently many others didn't like it either.

very easy and quite tasty. I like a little more crunch so I added celery and a bit of red onion.

A very nice dish. I couldn't find the Goya Salad packet, so I used a "hot" salsa packet I found in the produce area. It was really good. I was surprised at first how thick the dressing was, but the taste was really good. Lots of nice textures and a good flavor throughout. I will make this again. Very easy recipe.

Good, easy recipe. A good way to eat your black-eyes if you don't particularly love them! I could not find the seasoning listed, but did use the Goya Cilantro & Tomato seasoning packets. The only thing I added was a little Mrs. Dash Table Blend at the table. Next time I will add a little of that or just salt and pepper to the dressing mix.

Very delicious. Made this for a bridal shower and all the ladies loved it. I couldn't find the Salad and Vegetable seasoning so I used the Goya Sazón with Coriander and Annatto. It was very good. Also I couldn't find blackeyed peas, so I used black beans. Added minced red onion.

We really enjoyed this salad and it was so easy to make! I wasn't able to find the Goya Salad & Vegetable seasoning, so I substituted the Cilantro & Tomato seasoning packets instead. Even with the slight change it was delicious!

This was good but a little bland. I may up it to three seasoning packets next time. I found the Goya seasoning in my grocery store in the international aisle near the beans, coconut water, etc .
