2 tablespoons canola or grapeseed oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 small garlic clove, minced

1/2 cup finely chopped green onions
1/4 cup chopped pickled jalapeño peppers
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 (15.8-ounce) can black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained
