Wow. Now that was fast. I can't believe 2012 is done. I have to say, 2011 was the worst year of my life. 2012 was an improvement, but still not the greatest. I have a good feeling about 2013. Amazing things are going to happen. So let's make sure with kind of a play on what I posted for you all for the last new year!
Hoppin' John Salad with Molasses Dressing
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup mild-flavored (light) molasses
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 (1-pound) bag frozen black-eyed peas
1 1/2 cups 1/2-inch cubes peeled yam (red-skinned sweet potato)
2 cups 1/2-inch cubes andouille sausage (about 12 ounces)
1 1/2 cups frozen sliced okra, thawed, patted dry
1 cup chopped red onion
Whisk first 4 ingredients in small bowl to blend; season with salt and pepper.
Cook black-eyed peas and yam in large saucepan of boiling salted water until tender, about 8 minutes. Drain; cool. Place in large bowl. Add andouille, okra, and onion. Add enough dressing to coat and toss.
Have a very SAFE AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
See you all on the other side!
