Ingredients

Directions

Spray a large nonstick skillet with canola oil spray and heat over medium-high heat. Add the bacon and cook until very lightly browned, about 3 minutes per side. Cool slightly and cut into thin strips.

Whisk together the vinegar, olive oil and salt and pepper to taste in a large bowl. Add the carrots, peas and scallions and toss. Add the watercress and toss again. Transfer to a large platter and top with the bacon. 

Cook's Note

Bacon and black-eyed peas are a classic combination, but you could also use just about any bean you have on hand: navy beans, chickpeas or black beans would all be excellent.
