Bell Pepper and Dill Salad
Light and refreshing, this 5 minute Bell Pepper and Dill Salad is an easy weeknight side!
I first tasted this salad at a summer potluck party and instantly fell in love with the vibrant colors and the refreshing taste. I tried recreating the recipe at home and it became an instant hit with my family. I've been making this recipe ever since.
This recipe has a short list of ingredients and is quick and easy to make. I used mini bell peppers but regular ones work just fine. Addition of dill takes this salad to a different level. Read about some of the health benefits of Dill here.
