    About this recipe: The great thing about this salad is that it's so versatile. Add more red pepper and less cucumber, or use red onion instead of white, fresh herbs instead of dried, etc - it doesn't really matter! It's always tastes wonderful and is worth the effort.

    • For the salad
    • 1 green pepper, thinly sliced
    • 1 red pepper, thinly sliced
    • 1 yellow pepper, thinly sliced
