Black-eyed peas Fresh Veggie Salad

I really like the taste of bell-peppers with a dash of lemon and a little salt. Only this time, I tried them with a legume.  

Review at home: Refreshing.Nutritious.Tasty!



Feel free to add  any of your favorite veggies/fruits as per you liking. 🙂


1 cup cooked black-eyed peas (pressure cook ½ cup legume in 2 cups water with ½ tsp salt, ¼ tsp turmeric powder and 1 tsp cumin seeds, for approximately, 2-3 whistles)

½ cup each red, yellow, green bell-pepper

4-5 florets of blanched broccoli (add broccoli in hot water and a pinch of salt for two minutes and strain)

1 tsp finely chopped green chili

Freshly ground black-pepper

Roughly chopped fresh coriander

Juice of half a lemon or more

Salt to taste



Toss all of the above ingredients and serve! So quick 😀 ! Especially, when you have all your ingredients in place.
