Black-Eyed Pea and Arugula Salad

  • SERVINGS: 10
  1. 4 ears of corn, shucked
  2. 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
  3. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  4. Vegetable oil, for the grill
  5. 4 cups fresh or frozen black-eyed peas
  6. 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  7. 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  8. 2 red bell peppers, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  9. 1/3 cup finely chopped red onion
  10. 1/3 cup finely chopped cilantro
  11. 2 jalapeños, seeded and minced
  12. 1/2 pound young arugula
  1. Light a grill. Brush the ears of corn with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Lightly brush the grill with the vegetable oil and grill the corn over a medium-hot fire, turning frequently, until lightly charred and almost tender, about 5 minutes. Let cool slightly. Over a bowl, cut the kernels from the cobs.
  2. In a saucepan of boiling salted water, cook the black-eyed peas until tender, about 12 minutes. Drain and refresh under cold water. Drain and pat dry.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk the 1/3 cup of olive oil with the lime juice and balsamic vinegar. Season with salt and pepper. Add the grilled corn, black-eyed peas, red bell peppers, onion, cilantro and jalapeños and toss well. Season generously with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or for up to 4 hours. Toss the black-eyed pea salad with the arugula and transfer to a platter just before serving.
