Black-eyed Pea Salad

I made this today. It has many ingredients, but nothing I don't normally stock. It's a refreshing summertime meal.

1-1/2 cups cooked and drained black-eyed peas - canned is okay, fresh is better

1 cup chopped cooked chicken
1/4 cup chopped celery
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup cooked rice
1/4 cup chopped onions
1/4 cup mayonaise
1 teaspoon pepper
1 dash of hot sauce

Blend and pack in a mold. Refrigerate for 1/2 hour or so. Ice with topping.

Topping
1 mashed avocado
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 cup mayonaise
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

WOW! That sounds DEEElicious! duly copied.

You're right, I think I'd like it better with dried peas I soaked overnight. not fond of canned beans, especially if I'm not cooking them with a bunch of onions and herbs.

Sorry, no picture. I might be the last soul without a digital camera.

I think jenny meant that the recipe ingredients alone "look" good.

Yes, that's what I meant.....

I can speak English at times! Anyway, the recipe very much appeals to me! I love main dish salads in the summer.
