Suggested Uses Edit
- This recipe may be used as a filling for celery sticks or a dip for raw vegetable pieces. We usually make more than we need for our initial serving so that there will be some left over in the refrigerator for a snack.
- We enjoy it on our baked potatoes; or diluted slightly with water, we add this black eye pea dip to a large tossed salad with chunks of baked Potato for a “one-bowl” meal.
