This was quite good, my husband even liked it, said that it was refreshing and not too, too spicey. It also is a very pretty salad. Made for ZWT4.

I used yellow and red bell peppers, omitting the green bell. This was a very colorful and tasty salad, not too hard to make. It went really well with a slice of warmed up wheat naan bread.
