  • 1 cup dry black-eyed peas
  • 5 stalks green onions (chopped)
  • handful of parsley (chopped)
  • ½ English cucumber (diced)
  • 1 red bell pepper (seeded and diced)
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes (chopped into quarters)
  • 1 jalapeno pepper (seeded and diced)
  • 1 lime (juiced)
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • ¼ cup olive oil


  • Soak the black-eyed peas in water overnight or for at least 8 hours. Strain the water from the beans and wash the beans under cold running water.
  • Pour the beans into a pot. Add 7 cups of water and ½ teaspoon of kosher salt to the beans.
  • Put the pot on the stove, cover the pot and bring the beans to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat and let the beans simmer for 1 hour or until the beans are tender.
  • Mix together the olive oil, lime juice, black pepper, and ½ teaspoon of kosher salt in a small bowl to make a salad dressing.
  • In a salad bowl, add and mix together all the remaining salad ingredients.
  • Drain the water from the cooked beans and then add the beans to the salad. Pour the dressing onto the salad and mix everything together.
  • Place the salad in the fridge and let it marinade for at least 1 hour until serving.


  • You can use canned black-eyed peas instead of the dried ones if you want a quicker way to make this salad. Just strain the liquid from the canned beans and add the beans to the salad.
  • Saladu nebbe can be served cold or at room temperature.
