Black-Eyed Pea & Black Bean Tropical Salsa

I’m always up for a refreshing salsa that’s a little different. This mixture is quite addicting and it’s low in fat & calories, also high in fiber. It holds over great in the refrigerator so it’s perfect to make the day before! Served with chips, or topped on tacos or scrambled eggs….anything you like to add a bit fresh zip. If you place this out at a party - it will be gone ..quickly. So, as usual, I double the batch to keep some for my own family.
