Summer isn't over in California! Caroline and I got to have some fun a couple of weeks ago at the Torrance farmers market! We were on our way out of the market when we tried a salad out for sample. Oh my goodness was it delicious! So fresh, so healthy, so simple! It was almost hard to believe that a salad could taste so good! We ended up buying all of the ingredients from the farmer and going home to make it for ourselves for dinner! Since there are no greens, this will keep well overnight for lunch tomorrow, too!

easy summer pepper salad

1 green pepper
1 red pepper
2 sweet Italian peppers
2 sweet Hungarian peppers
2 jalapeño peppers
2 tomatoes
2 handfuls cilantro leaves, chopped
1 red onion (if desired)
3 lemons
3 teaspoons kosher salt

Chop all peppers (except the jalapeños- you can thinly slice those!) and tomatoes into 1 1/2-inch squares and combine with the cilantro in a large bowl. If you'd like onions, slice these into bite size pieces as well. Squeeze the lemons and toss the pepper mix with lemons and kosher salt. Let sit at room temperature for an hour or so until the tomatoes release their juices and the peppers can marinade in the lemon juice. Serve or store in the refrigerator overnight and bring back to room temperature before serving!
