Summer Blackeye Pea Salad

I recently met Rose Parker, Macrobiotic Counselor at the Art & Health Fair presented by the Wellness Plan in Midtown Detroit, Michigan (7/23). Our vendor tables were side by side at the event. The following recipe is adapted from the salad she was sampling and demonstrating how easy it is to prepare. Yum, yum...please enjoy, share with friends and tell me what you liked most about the recipe:
Summer Black-eyed Pea Salad
1/2 Red onion, chopped
1 large carrot, peeled & chopped
2 medium garlic gloves, chopped
2 medium celery stalks, chopped
1/2 Red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 Orange bell pepper, chopped
1/2 Green bell pepper, chopped
1 cup Blackeye peas, soaked, cooked to tender and drained
1/3 Hulled barley, washed, cooked to tender and drained
2 tablespoons Vegennaise
Herbamare to taste
Allspice to taste (or Braggs Sprinkle)
Cayenne pepper to taste

Mix together all the above ingredients. Chill and serve on red leaf lettuce with sesame seed crackers or pumpernickel bread!

Yours in health,
Dr. Velonda
