For the Salad:
3 cups of cooked purple hull or black-eyed peas (or equivalent canned)
1/2 cup finely chopped purple onion
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1 green onion, sliced
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon chopped pickled jalapeno
1 (2 ounce) jar of pimentos, well drained
1 medium tomato, chopped
1 wedge lime, optional
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro or parsley
Whisk together the dressing ingredients in a lidded storage bowl. Add all of the salad ingredients, except the lime and herbs; gently fold dressing over the top and stir. Cover tightly and refrigerate several hours up to overnight before serving. Squeeze lime juice and toss with herbs just before serving. Store leftovers in the fridge, but consume in a couple of days.
Season the chicken with some salt and black pepper, then coat well with the potato starch. Set aside.
Combine all the ingredients for Dressing together, stir to mix well.
Heat up a Dutch oven, deep skillet or pan with 3 inches of oil. Heat the oil to 375F. Coat the wings again and shake off the excess potato starch. Drop the wings gently into the oil and deep-fry until light brown or when they are cooked and become crispy. Remove the wings from the oil and drained on paper towels. Combine the Dressing and the wings, toss to coat well. Garnish with the sesame and serve immediately.
