Thank you for such a delicious salad! My wife and I are trying to eat meals that don't heat the kitchen up-this is a winner! My wife and I do not care for green bell pepper or cilantro. I bought a large red bell pepper as a substitution for the green bell pepper. I omitted the cilantro from the dressing mixture. We will make this again!!!!
