  • 2 cups cooked black eyed peas
  • 1 cup diced cucumber
  • 1/2 cup diced carrot
  • 1 cup diced bell pepper
  • 2 cups shredded romaine lettuce
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1 tbsp low sodium tamari
  • 1 pitted date
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 powdered ginger
  • 1/2 cup water


  • Mix all of the vegetables and the peas together in a large mixing bowl.
  • In a blender, combine the almond butter, tamari, date, lemon, ginger, and water. Blend till smooth. It may look thin at first, but this dressing will thicken considerably in the fridge.
