BEAUTIFUL like a RAINBOW! And it tastes FABULOUS! I made this as directed with yellow and orange bell peppers and added in some shredded purple cabbage with romaine lettuce and baby spinach leaves. I wish I had gotten a photo of this one it just makes you happy to look at it. The dressing is also GREAT! Made for the Holiday tag game.
