Dad's Summertime Vegetable Salad

This is like my Dad's fruit salad only with vegetables. My brother and I loved the fruit salad so much that we also ate our vegetables cause Dad said it was the same. It's not, but just as good! I added the orange pepper.

Absolutely delicious and wonderful to have in the middle of winter to satisfy that craving for summer! I used campari tomatoes that taste almost garden fresh. Also used non-fat cottage cheese. I think next time I may add some edamame instead of the frozen peas. Made for healthy choices ABC game.
