Saladu Ñebbe (Black-Eyed Pea Salad)

Nuvita Biscuits

Simple and satisfying, this chile-spiked black-eyed pea salad dressed with fresh lime juice is a great side dish for grilled fish. The longer it sits, the better it tastes, so let it marinate for an hour or more before serving.


  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 cup roughly chopped parsley
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 5 cups cooked black-eyed peas
  • 10 scallions, roughly chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, stemmed, seeded, and finely chopped
  • 1 medium tomato, cored, seeded, and finely chopped
  • 1 medium cucumber, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 habanero chile, stemmed, seeded, and minced
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


1. In a large bowl, whisk together the lime juice and parsley. While whisking, drizzle in the canola oil to make a smooth dressing.

2. Add the black-eyed peas, scallions, bell pepper, tomato, cucumber, and chile to the dressing. Season the mixture with salt and pepper. Set aside at room temperature for at least 1 hour, or refrigerate up to overnight to marinate and meld the flavors. Serve chilled or at room temperature.

    Does anyone have any good salsa recipes/instructions? I want a sauce that uses dried habanero peppers. Secondly, how would I preserve the sauce. Please add any equipment used in the making of the sauce

    Hey, I was wondering if anyone could give me a list of all the instruments used in the song Meet Me Halfway by the Black Eyed Peas.
    It’s for a school project.
    Thanks =)

    What do the other members of the black eyed peas do?
    Will.I.AM and Fergie seem to be the prominent people of the black eyed peas, besides the ocassional Yeahs and wooos and rare rap sections, what do the other two members do? particulary the asian guy, he seems like hes just like the xanadu of the group, surely he must do something.
