I think this recipe was amazing... nice and healthy and very very tasty... i added red peppers aswell as I prefer them to green peppers and I used Honey and Mustard dressing as I dont like french dressing all that much. This is a great and quick recipe for anytime of the day and perfect for bbqs in the summer - 30 Aug 2011
