Black Eyed Pea Salad with Sweet Vidalia Onion Vinaigrette

Serve with brown rice and summer’s stewed tomatoes and corn-

One of my favorite bean dishes is Hoppin’ John, a comforting stew of rice, tomatoes and black eyed peas. It is one of the best dishes to eat in the south on January 1st as black eyed peas signify good luck for the coming year. Well, as the weather starts to warm up I want to prepare beans in a way that are cooling not warming. This is my take on a southern black eyed pea salad which is usually tossed in Italian vinaigrette. I think you’ll find the caramelized sweet onion dressing elevates it to a whole new level and paired with an equally southern side, stewed tomatoes (with a couple surprise ingredients), y’all be talkin’ with a drawl by the last bite.

Hoisin Glazed Pork Tenderloin

Serve with fennel and red cabbage slaw, brown rice-

This really flavorful and moist grilled pork is one of my favorite summer grilling recipes, especially for an impromptu outdoor get together when you are sick of burgers, dogs and chicken. I have it paired with a fantastic fennel-red cabbage slaw, which came from my friend and The Whole Meal tester Leslee’s repertoire of easy and really fresh sides. Rice is an easy accompaniment, but potatoes salad or even grilled corn are just as delish.
