|Tomato, Cucumber, and Bell Pepper Salad|
This recipe can either make 4 portions as a side dish or 2 portions if you really like salad!
Tomato, Cucumber, and Bell Pepper Salad - Serves 4
1 large cucumber (peeled, deseeded and diced)
3 small tomatoes - larger than a golf ball but smaller than a baseball (deseeded and diced/sliced)
1 large scallion (diced)
1 baby red bell pepper (diced)
3 tbsp rice vinegar
.5 tsp toasted sesame oil
1 tsp garlic powder
pink sea salt (or your favorite salt)
In a large bowl, toss cucumber, tomatoes, scallion and bell pepper. Set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk vinegar, sesame oil, garlic powder. Add chili oil to taste (I used 5 dashes so there is a small but noticeable kick) as well as salt and pepper to taste.
Toss dressing with vegetables, cover, and refrigerate. You can serve right away however I like to let the dish sit for about 30 minutes to let all the flavors come together.
