Pepper and Cucumber Salad

Total Time

Our neighbor gave us some peppers and a big cucumber and we made this. Now Dave is not a big fan of cucumber but he liked this. The dressing is very tart but went well with the combination. Original recipe from "Barbecue" by Christine France and Steven Wheeler. I removed some things and added other so hope you'll enjoy.

Attractive, refreshing, delicious side dish for a hot humid day! I used one lemon. Served with steak and potato croquettes and key lime pie. TY, Nimz.

This is so worthy of the 5 stars! Lovely fresh flavors and I loved the lemon zest, which was optional, but added it. Perfect! I did use an entire avocado, but will add more next time. Delicious! Made for Every Day Holiday Tag. :)

This was great I had some fresh tomatoes from my garden and everything else in the fridge so this was a perfect way to use them up.
