A New Year's tradition, Hoppin' John is usually served hot, but this cool salad is perfect for a summer picnic or lunch, or as a side salad for grilled meats. Feel free to sub your favorite cooked whole grain instead of rice.

How to Make It

Step 1

Brush onion slices with olive oil; cook in a hot grill pan over medium-high heat about 5 minutes on each side or until grill marks appear. Coarsely chop onion.

Step 2

Toss together peas, chopped onion, and 3 Tbsp. Apple Cider Vinaigrette in a medium bowl. Gently toss together tomatoes, next 2 ingredients, and 3 Tbsp. Apple Cider Vinaigrette in another bowl.

Step 3

Spoon rice onto a serving platter; top with tomato mixture and pea mixture. Serve with remaining vinaigrette.

Made this tonight with some pan fried pork chops and fried green tomatoes. Used a store bought can of field peas that had the best smokey flavor. Snipped basil and chives from the garden and had some parsley on hand. It was a nice change for a side dish. Good to try something different for a change. Would also be just as good w/o the rice. My picky husband sure did like it, too!
