Black Eyed Pea and Vegetable Chopped Salad

This easy salad can become dinner on the hot days of summer.  I like it even more when it has set overnight.  I don't put tomato in the salad because it can become slimy.  Instead I top it with chopped tomato on my plate or you can serve it in a hollowed out tomato.  As always put your own spin on it.  Use different veggies or herbs.  Make your own way.

  
Black Eyed Pea and Vegetable Chopped Salad

2 cups cooked fresh black eyed peas
1 small zucchini, quartered lengthwise and sliced
1 small yellow summer squash, quartered lengthwise and sliced
1 small bell pepper, chopped (use what color you want, I had green on hand)
1/2 red onion, finely diced
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. finely minced fresh flat leaf parsley
1 tbsp. finely minced fresh basil

Combine the first five ingredients, peas through onion, in a bowl.  In another bowl combine the rest of the ingredients, vinegar through basil, and whisk together.  Pour vinaigrette over the peas and veggies.  Toss to combine. 

It is as easy as that!  No mayo. means this travels well and you don't have as many worries if your eating outdoors.  Enjoy everyone!
