3. Add black pepper and garlic, stir to combine
4. Dice the tomato, peel and dice the onion and the cucumber and finely chop the parsley and cilantro. Place all of this into your dish with the previous ingredients.
5. Into this mixture, dump the can of corn and the can of black eye peas.
6. Add a splash of red wine vinegar and a splash of olive oil. Toss and taste. I like to “walk in” certain ingredients, vinegars, oils, salts and peppers. I add a splash, toss, taste, repeat, until it’s just perfect.:-)
7. When you reach perfection, slide your salad into the fridge to chill for about 30 minutes.
