Hoppin’ John Salad

I made this salad tonight from the All New Complete Step by Step Diabetic Cookbook.  I didn’t find much in this book that I wanted to make.

Hoppin’ John Salad
1/2 c. + 1/4 c. fat-free chicken broth
1/2 c. instant brown rice
2 TB apple cider vinegar

hot sauce, to taste
15 oz can black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained
1 1/2 c. sliced celery

In medium bowl, combine black-eyed peas, celery, onion and ham. Add cooked rice and pour vinegar mixture over all. Mix to combine.
