This recipe was initially posted in response to a round the world game. Not only did it sound good but once I got around to trying it myself, it WAS good! I'm not usually a cucumber person but I really like this recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition

This is a very nice salad, and I really enjoyed the crispness and sweetness of the green pepper without having to add any sugar. The next day it was more like pickles, but still enjoyable to eat. It doesn't have any of the tartness of pickles, so it is still a good salad.

This is super good. Shelly used red peppers and a regular cuke and rice wine vinegar. We will be making this again.

This is a unique, healthy and tasty veggie dish. I love the addition of the green olives -- gives it a great kick. A great crunchy and yummy snack. I followed the recipe exactly except for two small substitutions -- I used red bell pepper instead of green and rice vinegar instead of white wine vinegar. Perfect salad that I plan on enjoying often.
