"This dish is really different and really good. It's quick and easy to prepare and sure to become a favorite. Degree of spice can be adjusted based on your personal preference. A great alternative to ham and beans or pea salad! Serve with warm, crusty bread and a tomato salad. Use fresh or frozen corn."

  2. Mix together the warm corn, black-eyed peas, ham, celery, and onion in a salad bowl.
  3. Whisk together the sour cream, ketchup, cilantro, Cajun seasoning, and hot pepper sauce in a bowl until smooth. Stir the dressing lightly into the black-eyed pea mixture until thoroughly mixed. Serve immediately.

This dish is okay. Put sour cream on anything and it's going to be pretty good. I did substitute carrot for celery because that's what I had on hand.

Wow, what a refreshing change from plain old black eyed peas for New Years ... and they don't have to cook for hours and hours! I can't wait for everyone to try this tomorrow. It's delicious. ...

WOW. Easy and very good taste. What a great summer time meal.

I needed to use a few cans of Black Eyed Peas..found your recipe. It was a hit with my family. The only things I changed was more onion we like onion, and I used Trader Joes Cilantro dressing ...

this was very easy and delish, used cilantro paste insted of dried. Even my husband said it was good and he usually says nothing.

We really enjoyed this! The only changes I made were to use garlic instead of onion and to omit the cilantro.
