  • Summary

    Black-eyed peas mix with cherry tomatoes, fresh basil, green onions and red leaf lettuce in this colorful, flavor-filled salad. Experiment with different whole grains; we used millet but barley or quinoa work equally well.

    • 3 cups vegetable broth
    • 1 (15-ounce) can black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained
