This makes the Southern tradition of eating black eyed peas on New Year's Day not just bearable, but YUMMY.
2 cans black eyed peas, rinsed and drained
(I use 1 bag frozen cooked to direction)
1 large red or green pepper, finely diced
1 bunch green onions and tops, thinly sliced
1 envelope Good Seasons Italian dressing mix made as directed on pkg.
1 Tablespoon vinegar
1/4 to 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup chopped pickled jalapenos peppers
Mix Italian dressing according to package directions, adding the 1 additional Tablespoon vinegar. Combine dressing with rest of ingredients and refrigerate. Serve with crackers.
Make ahead, it's even better the next day.
