Black Eyed Pea Salsa
2 cans blacked peas, drained and rinsed

1/2 English cucumber, peeled & diced
3 celery stalks, diced

Sprinkle of salt & pepper

Combine all vegetables in a container with an air tight lid. Whisk dressing together and pour over vegetables. Cover with lid and give the container a good shake (or you could also lightly mix & cover with Saran Wrap).  Marinate in the fridge for 2 hours before serving & Enjoy.
