This Tomato Green Pepper Salad is from My Great Recipes.
The fresh flavors of green pepper, cucumber, and tomato blend perfectly with a slightly garlic flavored fresh lemon dressing. A garnish of a fresh sprig of mint will give the salad a very special touch.
This salad may be prepared in the morning for serving in the evening. If it is made the day before, be certain that the tomatoes are not overripe or they will taste like leftovers.
Good served with barbecued lamb chops or chicken or roast leg of lamb.
