black eyed pea salad

black eyed pea salad:

2 cans (precooked) black eyed peas, one drained, one semi drained if you don't have veganaise
1 red or green pepper or both!, diced
2 tomatos, cored/seeded, diced
1 small onion
1/2 cucumber, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced (optional)
juice of 1 lime (also optional, gives it a nice spark tho)
maybe two tablespoons of olive oil (if you aren't using veganaise)
some oregano, salt, basil, pepper

mix everything together. add spices to taste. chill and eat! my mom used to make this all the time, she used about a tablespoon of mayo to keep it all together, i don't have any veganaise so i just partially drained one of the cans and drizzled some olive oil over everything which works fine. i didn't use the garlic either. it's a good quick meal to make and refreshing during the summer... which san francisco doesn't seem to have hah. it's also really cheap, i got all the ingriedients minus the olive oil and spices for six bucks!
