“This dish is really different and really good. It's quick and easy to prepare and one that is 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.”

  1. Place the corn into a saucepan, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the corn is fully cooked, about 2 minutes. Drain the corn in a colander set in the sink.
  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. I only omitted the celery because we don't care for it and it was still perfect! Thanks!



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