    I've made this three times. Always a hit. Very easy. Have used it as both a side dish and a dip prior to a meal. I do not peel the tomatoes. The hardest part is dicing the jalapeno. Therefore, I used only half of a jalapeno so that the second time I made it I had the jalapeno ready to go.

    I used 28 oz of canned diced tomatoes with the jalapenos in them, two cans of black-eyed peas, and regular EVOO. We have it as a side dish. This is an incredibly easy and delicious salad! It's become one of my catering staples.

    Great summer salad. Very flavorful and takes about 10 minutes to make. I also did not bother to peel the tomatoes.

    Delicious, easy to make (I didn't bother peeling the tomatoes), and I imagine would go lovely with almost any summer-y dish. I had it with the Maple-Lemon Salmon and will be eating a double portion as lunch today.

    So good, and even better the next day! Didn't have garlic olive oil so I added more minced garlic, and also added a couple of minced fresh serranos from the garden for more spice. Made homemade corn chips by baking tortillas - delicious!

    This was a nice side dish, I cooked my own dried beans so I added a little extra salt.

    This is so good. I used seasoned rice vinegar because that is all I had. I think it would be just as good with only 1/2 of the oil.
