This is a dish that I am asked to make for potlucks, reunions, family get-togethers. There are never any leftovers except when I make it for myself. It is even better the next day. If I make it for myself, my next door neighbor always comes over and takes half of it home with her.
Place black-eyed peas, onion, green bell pepper, tomato, mayonnaise, canola oil, white vinegar, sugar, salt, and black pepper in a large bowl; stir to evenly distribute mayonnaise.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, preferably overnight.
Toss cabbage into black-eyed pea mixture just before serving.
