• 2-16 oz cans black eyed peas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • about 1/3 cup 7 Seas Thousand Island Salad Dressing
  • (this brand is fasting; I am not really sure how much to use - I just dump. But start with 1/3 cup and see how that is. You don't want it to be soupy)
  • 1 or 2 tomatoes

Mix all ingredients except tomatoes. Cover air tight and refrigerate till ready to serve. Chop tomatoes, stir into beans. This is great for make ahead; it is nutritious; we all love it - even the kids, and it is cold and refreshing on a hot day. We have it a lot.

**If beans are not kind to your digestive system...there is a product called Beano at the drug stores, which breaks down the enzymes that cause gas in a lot of people, so that they don't have gas. A wonderful thing.)
