  • 1 green bell pepper chopped
  • 2 medium tomatoes chopped
  • 1 red onion chopped
  • 2-4 jalapeno peppers diced, optional
  • 15 oz blackeye peas drained
  • 15 oz whole kernel corn drained
  • 8 oz Italian salad dressing
  • garlic salt to taste
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • In a large bowl, combine the bell pepper, tomatoes, red onion, jalapenos, blackeye peas, black beans and corn. Season with Italian dressing, garlic salt and salt & pepper; mix well. Cover and refrigerate overnight to blend flavors. Serve with chips or crackers.


  • This recipe is gluten free, but before you add the Italian dressing read the label! Some store-bought versions of the dressing contain wheat.
  • Allowing the salsa to marinate for a minimum of 30 minutes is a must! The best scenario is to refrigerate overnight for optimal flavor!
  • I enjoy this salsa in so many different ways, but I'll tell you my favorites! Solo with a sprinkling of salt as a light lunch. As a topping on a grilled chicken breast. As a dressing on a leafy salad. As a dip for tortilla chips.
  • Bring this with you to the next party you are invited to and you'll be the star! Everyone will ask you for the recipe.
