But a salad doesn't always have to be your standard, run of the mill lettuce and tomato and carrot boring combo. In fact, I eschew lettuce most of the time altogether.
A great example is this incredibly simple but colorful cucumber and bell pepper salad. It's exactly what it sounds like- except this one has grape tomatoes as well.
With some EVOO and ACV you are good to go.
This is a huge quantity, as I had intended to bring it to a BBQ. This would serve 5-6 easily. Adapt as you will!
Some great additions to this would be:
Feta cheese, if you are primal
Here is the quick recipe- so next time you are sick of your usual salads, or want a fresh, raw and colorful side to bring to a potluck, try this out!
Paleo Cucumber and Bell Pepper Salad
2 organic english hothouse cucumbers, cut into bite sized chunks
1 green pepper
1 orange pepper
1 red pepper
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
3 tbs EVOO
1 1/2 tbs Bragg's ACV
Salt and pepper to taste
This salad keeps pretty well. The following day in the fridge it is still crisp and not soggy.
