Black-eyed Pea Cakes with Heirloom Tomatoes and Slaw

    The black-eyed pea cakes were DELICIOUS and the simple tomato is a nice complement- especiall a summetime one from the garden! However, the broccoli slaw was really disappointing. The sugar/lime/sour cream flavor was just awful combined with the garlic-spicy pancakes. I tried this again with a basil-herbed mayonnaise on the side and it got rave reviews from dinner guests who were mighty skeptical of a black-eyed pea cake. You could probably keep the broccoli slaw, just with a mayonnaise-based dressing. I can't stress enough how GOOD and super-easy the black eyed pea cakes were by themselves.
