In fact, when Lt. Dan ate it, he told me it was a work of textural genius. …I can’t make this stuff up, people. Those were his words.

Amazing Market Bean Salad #healthy #salad #vegan #glutenfree

I started with tender cooked black eyed peas and white acre peas (field peas). Then I added raw sprouted mixed sweet peas and lentils that you can find in the produce department, next to the alfalfa sprouts.

Sounds like a whole lot of peas (not beans) in this Bean Salad, doesn’t it?

Well if you were wondering, peas and beans are essentially the same thing… All legumes.

Then a mixed in chopped red onion, garlic, flat leaf parsley, grassy olive oil, and a kiss of apple cider vinegar for punch.

And if that weren’t enough, I topped this Market Bean Salad with the most beautiful cherry tomatoes I’ve seen all season. The sweet tomatoes offer a cool juicy note to each crunchy bite.

    curious… w/ tomatoes not in season, how would this taste? & “field peas”… are they in season now, I have never heard of this kind of pea. Please, enlighten me….

      Hi Linda, I’m still finding good hot-house tomatoes in our local market. Not the same as summer tomatoes, but still sweet. Field peas also go by “white acre peas” and you can find them fresh, canned and frozen.

    This is so delicious! Perfect leftovers for lunch if you add the tomatoes later.
