Thank Oklahoma for this easy, bright and tangy salad. It's made with one of the state's staple crops, black-eyed peas -- or cowpeas as some in the "Sooner State" like to say. With bursts of corn, tomato and pepper, it's a salad that can be served cold or at room temperature, making it perfect for a picnic or tailgate party.
