I created this salad version of Hoppin John by combining a number of ingredients from other Hoppin John recipes and adding cilantro, tomatillos, and lemon juice for a zesty flavor. The salad is just as good without red pepper for those with discerning palates. Also as an alternative, a favorite hot sauce can be substituted for the red pepper with each individual serving. I like to add a dash of Louisiana-style cayenne pepper sauce to mine.

This recipe is so refreshing! I made it according to the recipe,except I opted out of the cucumber, because I don't really like it. This recipe is a great jumping-off point. Next time I make it I might add two grilled chicken breasts cut into bite sized pieces. It might be good with bacon crumbles and shredded cheddar, the possibilities are endless! Thanks, Gumaraid!
