  • Place pork on a rimmed baking sheet; rub with oil. Sprinkle all over with spice mixture, patting in gently. Roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of meat registers 150 degrees. 20 to 25 minutes; let cool.

  • Make black-eyed pea salad: In a medium container, whisk mustard, vinegar, and oil. Add all vegetables. Season with salt and pepper; toss to combine.

  • Serve: If stored in refrigerator, bring pork and black-eyed pea salad to room temperature. Thinly slice pork; serve with black-eyed pea salad.

Yes, I was wondering if there is a way I can make the Black-Eyed-Pea salad a hot dish? I would want the corn cooked. This looks so so yummy. I would like to fix this for New Years Day. All I have to do is cook cabbage. Thanks a bunch.

This black eye pea salad is my go to recipe. Everywhere I take it everyone loves it! I always make a double batch even if it is just for hubby and I because it never lasts! Quick, easy and minimal effort...always a hit!

I love this recipe- quick and easy. The pork can be kept in the fridge and added to salads/soups/sandwiches all week. Pickiest kids LOVE it. I make the salad all the time as well but it never lasts that long

The pork was ok, but not fantastic. The black-eyed pea salad was really great. It was a perfect compliment to the pork. Read my full review at: www.cookeverydayfood.com

The roast pork is delicious but I like this recipe for the black-eyed pea salad. It's a complimentary side dish that offers a great taste and what a good way to get my family to eat beans and a few veges. We also like it as a dip with tortilla chips.
