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!
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.
