Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup quick-cooking barley
  • 2 cups frozen black-eyed peas
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons sherry vinegar or red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 7 ounces mixed baby greens (about 12 cups)

  • 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 5 radishes, chopped
  • 4 scallions, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped dill pickles or cornichons
Directions

Bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Add the barley, then reduce the heat to medium and simmer 7 minutes; add the black-eyed peas and continue cooking until both the barley and black-eyed peas are tender, about 5 more minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water.

Whisk the olive oil, vinegar, mayonnaise, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste in a large bowl. Add the greens, ham, tomatoes, radishes, scallions, pickles, barley and black-eyed peas and toss. Divide among plates.
