"New Orleans food is as delicious as the less criminal forms of sin." -Mark Twain
This is truly a Southern bean salad, with creamy black eyed peas and the zip of good Cajun seasoning. Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning offers a salt-free version as does Chef Paul Prudhomme. This is great under a simple piece of grilled fish, chicken, or steak.
You can make your own Cajun seasoning, but there are some good no-salt added versions on the market. Watch out for those that use potassium chloride instead of salt - they can have a metallic aftertaste.
