From the Garden...Garden Pepper Salad

I like salads like this one for outdoor eating or carrying to potlucks or picnics.  They don’t wilt.  This is a great way to use your garden peppers and tomatoes.  As you can see from the photo, I didn’t have yellow peppers in the garden, but I did have both red and yellow cherry tomatoes for color.  My husband especially liked the dressing.  
This is a great holiday salad too, fresh and colorful, now that nice peppers and cherry tomatoes are available all year round, bringing a little touch of summer to a fall or winter meal.
