Black Eyed Pea and Spicy Turkey Salad

I was home alone on Wednesday with a fridge to clear out so I decided to throw together a bean salad with tons of rando ingredients.  It took no time and was actually super tasty and filling.  Here’s what I used:

  • Can of Black Eyed Peas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/3 lb Sausalito Turkey (I ordered mine from Fresh Direct, but you can get any spiced turkey from your deli counter and chop it up)
  • Cherry Tomatoes (quartered)
  • Avocado (at least 1/2), diced
  • Cotija Cheese, crumbled
  • 1/2 Lemon, juiced
  • Dill, hadfull

It was sort of a mishmash of things but really worked!  Note: a lot of these ingredients are salty (canned beans, spiced turkey, and cotija cheese) so you don’t need to add any salt.  You good, girl.

After tossing it all together, I realized could be tasty as a taco – with meaty things like turkey and avocado, how could it be bad?  Guess what – I was right.  I thoroughly enjoyed this salad served at room temp in a warm tortilla with a dollop of sour cream.
