I didn't have yellow pepper so I left it out but this was delicious. It's easy to play around with the spices to your own tastes, and I reduced the olive oil by a lot because it just added way too much fat. You could eat this as a salad, put it in a pita or taco shell, or even use it as a dip for chips! Thanks for the recipe!
