    I'm not a big fan of avocado, but this bean salad was really delicious. I used black beans instead of black eye beans, and only used half the amount of avocado given in the recipe, but it turned out very nice indeed - and was even tastier the next day!  -  10 Jun 2012


    I could not stop eating this - it was SO good! Left out the green onions due to personal taste and cut the amount of oil to make it a little healthier. I've never heard of "shoepeg" corn before and I found it with the other regular canned corn. I think using regular yellow corn would change the taste so find shoepeg if possible! This might be my new "go-to" party appetizer. LOVED it!!!! Thanks for sharing!  -  02 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was very good. I couldn't find black eyed peas, so I substituted black beans. I'll definitely make it again, but next time I'll spice it up with with some jalapenos or chili peppers to add some heat for us.  -  25 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
