And this is what you get when you start chopping up different colored bell peppers!

No matter how much food is prepared for our Friday night family supper, there’s always room for a salad. At least that’s what I say! I had so much food last week and I knew if I made a big traditional green salad, it wouldn’t have even been looked at and passed around.

So, at 5:00 pm, I decided to chop yellow, orange and red peppers and put them in a bowl. Before I knew it, I had a great tasting salad and even a bit leftover for the next day.

Easy peasy, no fuss salad. You can swap the ingredients, add chopped tomatoes, celery, red onion – whatever you have on hand works. The point is, just make it 🙂
