I was making some vidalia grilled chicken for supper last night, and wanted a side dish with a little crunch to it to go along with the chicken and asparagus. Well, after reading my brother's post about peppadews I picked a jar up. This got mixed with a can of black eyed peas with bacon, well rinsed and drained, some onions, celery and cucumber. I then made a quick vinagrette out of dijon mustard, red wine vinegar and extra virgin olive oil, with some leftover tarragon minced into it. All I can say is it came out kick ass! The wife loved it, even though she thought she'd hate it when she looked at it. The peppadews give it a wonderful sweetness, offset by a little bit of a kick, and the crunch from the crispier veggies puts it over the top.This is the only pic I got of it, since I wasn't sure I was going to like it either.
I'll post the recipe properly as soon as possible...this one is a winner guys!
 
Next time I will use hotter peppadews, or kick it up a bit with crushed red as well.

   1 pickling cucumber, diced
   Salt and pepper to taste
Dressing:
   1 heaping teaspoon Dijon style mustard
   2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
   1 teaspoon garlic paste
   2 teaspoons chopped fresh tarragon

________________________________________

Wow, what a superb summer salad you've made there, Dave! Very, very nice and the recipe is perfect for just about anyone to make. The plated pic sure showed off the pretty colours in the salad which added a visual element to the entire meal. Thanks for including the vinagrette recipe, that's one I'd like to try. Thumbs Up

You know, looking at this again, this is the perfect time of year to make it. Dave, what do you think about adding some chopped fresh tomatoes in there? We've got some from the garden that are asking to go into something. I'm thinking maybe a single cayenne pepper, finely chopped in the whole dish to add some zing?

I think tomatoes would be a great addition John. A cayenne would also complement everything else in there. Let us know how you make out with it. It would be a nice little buffet dish for the game tomorrow.
Go ahead...play with your food!
