Dilled Tomato, Cucumber and Black Eyed Pea Salad 5

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.
