Thanks for the link Andy M.

Amy - if I brought a big green salad I would get shot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Going to the store now - I think it's going to be a "basic" type recipe - I think fried chicken just calls for a good old-fashioned potato salad.

Thanks for all the suggestions!

You, you, you Veggie hater, you! Hey, ya didn't give us much time or I'd suggest an appy that would knock their shoes off (maybe). How about some wine & p/u a cheesecake. They'll forget all about the chicken. Have a great get-to-gether.

Black Eye Pea Salad

2 cups black eye peas
4 oz. white onion - diced
6 oz. red bell peppers - diced
4 oz. black olives - chopped
1 tbsp oregano
4 oz. parsley
(great with cilantro too)

For the dressing:
6 oz. EVOO
Zest of half a lime
4 oz. white vinegar
1 tsp chopped garlic
1 tbsp sugar
salt and pepper to taste

Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl.
Mix dressing in a separate bowl and pour over salad.
Adjust with salt and pepper to taste.

This is even better the second day.

Note to Beth and GB - ok, food for thought - how about a corn pudding with the mixture that GB suggested in there! It could we well-drained say the second day - sort of a use for the left-overs!!!!!!!!!!! Now THAT just may be worth trying!!!! I might try it in my Cheesy Spoon Bread - maybe even add some andouille to it and just have it for a dinner - SOON! LOL

I know this is too late, but just for the record, when my mom made her absolutely fabulous fried chicken when I was growing up (haven't made it in years - might have to if it ever gets cool here again), she made plain white rice and a wonderful gravy from the frying oil and seasoning flour.

Chicken Gravy

2 tbsp. frying oil from fried chicken
2 tbsp. seasoning flour from fried chicken
2 cups milk
salt and pepper to taste

After frying chicken, pour off all but 2 tbsp. oil. Sprinkle flour over oil and whisk together, scraping up browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Cook over medium heat for a few minutes. Whisk in milk. Bring to a boil and boil 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly. Taste and adjust seasoning. Serve over rice.
