Black-Eyed-Pea 
Salad

Sylvia Woods is perhaps New York's most famous soul food chef. In fact, she's been crowned the "queen of soul food," a cuisine that is not generally known for being low calorie.
The Zagat New York City restaurant survey said that the food at Wood's Harlem restaurant is tasty and comforting, but warned: "Don't tell your doctor what you ate."
That's all changed. Woods has joined forces with Splenda and concocted some delicious, yet light treats.
*Canned black-eyed peas and any brand hot sauce may be substituted for Sylvia's canned black-eyed peas and Sylvia's Hot Sauce. For that special flavor, look for Sylvia's canned black-eyed peas and Sylvia's Hot Sauce in your local market or order online.


Ingredients

1 1/2 cups Sylvia's canned black-eyed peas, drained*
3/4 cup green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup celery, chopped
1/2 cup red onion, chopped
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1/8 cup sugar (or 1/4 cup Splenda granular)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon Sylvia's Hot Sauce


Directions
Combine black-eyed peas, bell pepper, celery, red onion and onion in a large bowl; set aside.
Combine Sugar (or Splenda granular), salt, pepper, garlic, vegetable oil, vinegar and Sylvia's Hot Sauce; whisk until blended. Pour dressing over black-eyed pea mixture, tossing gently to coat. Cover and chill overnight.
