Black eye Peas Salad

For day 3 of the theme guilt free indulgence,sharing a simple and healthy salad with black eye peas.Though salads are not regular in my house,I rarely make some kind of salad/chaat with the legumes for evening snack.
While cleaning the pantry,found out a packet of black eye peas,so wanted to try a salad how I normally make with black chickpeas.For my surprise it came out so good,the addition of peanuts and almonds make it crunchy.Try this yummy and filling salad.............................
