because its a holiday weekend and there will be lots of bbqs and parties...i decided i better post a really easy, really yum recipe that you may want to bring as your 'dish to share'!! i am a BIG salsa fan...sometimes i have a problem controlling myself at mexican restaurants...yeahhh..if you know me, you know (i ask for my own salsa, because i dont like to share!). this salsa is the fastest, easiest one i have made and it was SO GOOD!! here ya go:

Black Eyed Pea and Corn Salsa

1 can black eyed peas (drained)
1 can petite diced tomatoes (or fresh if you want..but it was GOOD with canned--cheaper and easier too!!)
1 can corn (drained)-can use bi-color kernel to make it cuter!
1/4 cup (or more, if youre me) finely chopped onion
1 garlic clove (crushed or finely chopped)
~ 6 rings diced jalapeno peppers (can use more or less depending on how hot you like it!)
couple pinches kosher salt (i only put a little bc i dont like salt..but it DOES need some)
*optional: 1/4 cup finely diced cucumbers (mom added it and loved it--i dont like cucumbers!)
*optional: cilantro
*optional: any other veggies you want to add in! make it your own :)

1. finely chop garlic, onion, jalapeno peppers, and any other veggies. put in a big bowl.
2. add the cans of corn, black eyed peas, and tomatoes.
3. give it a big stir, try it..modify with more salt or more peppers if needed...AND ENJOY!!!

THATS IT!!!! how easy!! RIGHT?? it was seriously delish! i ate it with both fish tacos and chips and it was awesome! you can also put it over chicken or eat it on crackers :) YUM!!
