Black-eyed peas are an underrated legume.

While chickpeas and black beans tend to get all of the attention, these tasty beans also contain plenty of fiber, protein, vitamin A, and folate.

And making this simple salad is one of the easiest ways to enjoy them.

To take it up another notch, make your own fresh pesto.
