Black Eyed Pea and Spinach Salad

I made this Black Eyed Pea and Spinach Salad by Ellie Krieger (LOVE her!).  I didn't have buttermilk on hand so I used 1/2 c nonfat plain yogurt, and 1/4 c milk instead.  I also added 2 tsp of sugar to the dressing, and doubled both the pepper and the hot sauce.  It produced a tangy dressing, which was a nice contrast to the red onion, black eyed peas, and spinach.  Next time I think I'll add a clove of garlic to the dressing also.  I really didn't have high hopes for this salad, because it sounded rather plain, but I had all of the ingredients on hand and gave it a try.  It was a pleasant surprise of flavor.
