Sweet Pepper Salad

January 30, 2009

The sweet peppers we received in the first produce share have become everyone’s favorite!   Here’s a great way to addpeppers them to a salad.  This recipe also uses the green leaf lettuce from your share.

Tip: To prevent your lettuce from wilting too quickly, remove the leaves from the stalk, wash them, put them through a salad spinner or dry thoroughly, wrap them in paper towel and store in an air-tight container.  An ice bath will also perk them up!

Sweet Pepper Salad

Green Leaf Lettuce – chopped up
Sweet Peppers – sliced
Cucumbers – sliced
