Putting it all together

Combine your tomatoes, avocado, onion, black beans, black-eyed peas, corn, and pepper in a big bowl. Toss it all together so that everything is well mixed.

In a separate bowl or jar, mix your olive oil, lime juice, red wine vinegar, sweetener, hot sauce, cumin, salt, pepper, and finely chopped cilantro. Combine very well.

Pour dressing over your salad and toss again. Serve with your favorite tortillas.

Keep refrigerated until eating time. Give your salad one more good toss before serving along with chips.
