Spinach & Black-Eyed Peas Salad with Jalapeño Dressing

I love the texture of the salad. You get the chewiness from the black eyed peas, and then the crunch from the red bell peppers.

The dressing is a little unusual in that there’s equal amounts of vinegar and olive oil, but the extra vinegar helps to ‘lift’ the peas.

Preparation time: 15 mins

Cooling time: 30 mins (plus at least 4 hours chilling time)

Directions

How To Make Your Spinach & Black-Eyed Peas Salad with Jalapeño Pepper Dressing:

  1. In a medium sized saucepan, bring your chicken stock and peas to boil over a medium heat.

  2. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low, and cook until the peas are tender, around 5 minutes.

  3. Drain your peas and allow to cool for 30 minutes.

  4. In the meantime, dice your yellow pepper using a sharp chef’s knife and wooden cutting board. Next, cut the cabbage in slices, and slice your scallions.

  5. Using a precise paring knife, deseed your Jalapeño pepper and mince finely.

  6. In a small bowl, place the vinegar, oil, Jalapeño pepper, salt and pepper, and whisk well using a small balloon whisk.

  7. In your salad / presentation bowl, place the peas, cabbage, yellow pepper and scallions. Pour over your Jalapeño pepper dressing and toss together.

  8. Chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours (if you can chill overnight, even better).

  9. Roughly chop up your spinach. Take your salad out of the fridge and fold the spinach into the salad.

  10. Serve your salad with serving tongs.

Kimberly Jones said: My mom loves these meat claws

There very durable and cut right threw the meat highly recommended. My mom works with a church and I got them for her she use to use a knife which took her awhile to cut up 5 big pans of pork roast up she loves these claws she said it cut her prep time in half and it broke the pork up very easily she told me thank you and that she loved them. Thank you Chef Remi you made my mom's day.

C.D. said: Love them

I love these measuring spoons. There are plenty of sizes so I have one for all my needs. They are sturdy and I believe they will last a long long time. I ditched the ring that holds them together because it is not my thing but I know lots of people that like that.

Kathy said: FINALLY a knife holder that WORKS

I have been wanting a magnetic knife holder FOREVER it seems. However, family and friends that had purchased numerous magnetic knife holders NEVER gave good reviews considering they didn't do what they were suppose too. So I decided to give Chef Remi's magnetic holder a try and I must say, I am beyond satisfied. I absolutely adore it! It does exactly what it is suppose to do, was easy to mount on the wall and adds more organization to my kitchen. I will definitely be referring everyone I know to this product and will purchase again if I ever get more knives.
