1 can black eyed peas, drained
2 cups diced tomatoes or whole grape or cherry tomatoes
1 cup diced red, orange or yellow peppers
¼ cup diced red or green onion

¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp ground pepper
To roast corn: Brush two ears of shucked corn with olive oil. Grill 5 minutes. Cool and slice corn off cobs. Mix with rest of ingredients.
