Ingredients

4 ears corn, shucked

2 tablespoons canola oil, plus more for brushing 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 

1 small red onion, finely diced 

1 small red bell pepper, finely diced 

1 Fresno chile, finely diced 

1 clove garlic, chopped 

One 15 1/2-ounce can black-eyed peas, drained, rinsed well and drained again 

2 tablespoons sugar 

1/4 cup cider vinegar 

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Directions

  1. Heat a grill to medium. Brush the corn with canola oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill until lightly charred on all sides, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Set aside to cool slightly, then slice the kernels off the cobs and reserve.
  2. Heat the 2 tablespoons canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the red onions, bell peppers and Fresno chile; cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds. Add the black-eyed peas and cook another 2 minutes. Add the sugar and vinegar; bring to a boil; and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves, about 3 minutes. Fold in the reserved corn and the parsley and transfer to a serving bowl. Serve warm or at room temperature.
