The hearty salad is inspired by Hoppin’ John — a black eyed pea lover’s dream dish — which is believed to bring good luck to those who eat them on New Year’s Day.


  1. Microwave one 10-ounce package frozen brown rice as the label directs; toss with one 15-ounce can black-eyed peas (drained and rinsed), 2 ounces chopped deli-sliced ham, 3 chopped celery stalks, 4 chopped scallions, 3 tablespoons each olive oil and apple cider vinegar, 2 tablespoons chopped parsley and 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt. Season with hot sauce.
