Inspired by a salad recipe of the same name from Pierre’s cookbook Senegal: Modern Senegalese Recipes from the Source to the Bowl, this salsa has it all- acid, sweetness, heat, and nutrient-dense black-eyed peas, best enjoyed scooped with a Yassa! Fonio Chip.

Black-eyed peas are the unsung hero of this salsa— a good source of calcium, folate, and vitamin A, they also cool down the salsa’s heat and add a creamy texture. Be sure to allow the peas their short soak in the fresh lime juice, it helps break down the pea fibers and bring all the flavors together.
