With March Madness just around the corner, I thought I would come up with a fun appetizer or dip to serve while watching the basketball games, or really to enjoy anytime you want. This Black-Eyed Pea Salsa is super simple to throw together and packed full of nutrients, making it a delicious and healthy option for game nights. I like to make up a big batch of Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips to use for dipping, and I am then officially in chips and dip heaven!

This salsa also tastes great as a salad. Pile any leftovers on a bunch of spinach and you have a super quick and healthy lunch. You won’t even need additional salad dressing, which is always a plus.
