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.
1 medium-size sweet onion, cut into 1/2-inch slices
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!
