One of the stories I've heard claims that during the Civil War, the town of Vicksburg, VA ran out of food while under attack. The residents fortunately discovered a stockpile of black-eyed peas and since then this legume was considered lucky.
Others claim a different theory - that the beans bring luck because they are round or ring-shaped, signifying that the old year has been completed and a fresh one is about to begin.
3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
Preheat the oven to 400 deg. F.
Dressing - In a glass jar, add 2 crushed garlic cloves, balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil & freshly squeezed lemon juice. Tightly close the jar & shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Set aside till ready to use.
Stir in the wilted greens. Scatter croutons all over the salad.
