I just poured myself a cup of java and headed into my office to get started on writing this post. I sat at my small desk, (laptop and mug that’s how small it is) 🙂 looked out the window to see a dark and dingy sky. Waittt ohhh and here comes the sun, and going, going, and goneeee. (literally just two seconds of sunshine, pffff) back to writing. I made this Spicy Bell Pepper Salad recipe twice last week because I absolutely loved it! That sweet and spicy taste of peppers mixed with the chili flakes just made me want more. It’s funny I was never the kind of person who enjoyed eating spicy food. The older I become my taste for food seems to be changing.
I wish I could say that the Bell Peppers I used for both of these recipes were from my mini garden. The Cherry Tomatoes and Green Beans I planted actually did quite good! 🙂 Don’t you love the colors in this Spicy Bell Pepper Salad it has all the Autumn colors in one bowl? The inspiration to prepare this colorful bowl actually came from the colors of the leaves while walking with Charlie. I did notice that each year the colors are a lighter shade than the previous year. hmmm
Isn’t it interesting how many wonderful recipes we can prepare with Bell Peppers? I try to add them to as many recipes as I can just to get that color and sweetness. What’s great about this salad is that it can be eaten hot or cold. Any which way you choose to eat it still tastes good!!
