Pepper and Cucumber Salad
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.
