Ingredients
  • Canola oil spray
  • Three 1-ounce slices Canadian bacon
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 large carrot, grated
  • One 15-ounce can no-salt-added black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch watercress, trimmed and separated into sprigs
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.
