This dish is really different and really good. It’s quick and easy to prepare and sure to become a favorite. Degree of spice can be adjusted based on your personal preference. A great alternative to ham and beans or pea salad! Serve with warm, crusty bread and a tomato salad. Use fresh or frozen corn.
Place the corn into a saucepan, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the corn is fully cooked, about 2 minutes. Drain the corn in a colander set in the sink.
Mix together the warm corn, black-eyed peas, ham, celery, and onion in a salad bowl.
Whisk together the sour cream, ketchup, cilantro, Cajun seasoning, and hot pepper sauce in a bowl until smooth. Stir the dressing lightly into the black-eyed pea mixture until thoroughly mixed. Serve immediately.
