A while back I had done a salad with quinoa and hummus and really enjoyed the different textures and flavors in one bowl so I decided to do another version with the below salad. 
I love the lemon and dill together and the addition of the black eyed peas adds a bit more weight. I will definitely be making this one again.
Please note, I created this recipe on the fly and after scarfing down an un-measured amount I didn’t get the number of servings so I did the nutrition info on the entire recipe and you will just have to divide it up for the number of servings you get.

  1. I love all the bright beautiful colors!! Cukes & dill … that's my kind of salad!

  2. Can you believe that I hate cucumbers? Can't even stand the smell. But I bet this would be fantastic using thinly sliced zucchini! I think I have everything but cooked black-eyed peas.

  3. Dawn, I love this salad, I am a huge fan of lemon juice and olive oil dressings and paired with dill, it looks delicious.

  4. Thanks all! Heather, zucchini would be great too.

    I think I might try a redo with some pasta soon!

  5. This is totally my kind of salad, and I love the idea of pairing it with a scoop of hummus and a scoop of quinoa!
