2 orange bell peppers
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander

Place in a large zip-top plastic bag; seal. Let stand 20 minutes. Peel and cut into (1/4-inch-wide) strips.

3. Combine juice and next 5 ingredients (through garlic) in a medium bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Add peppers to bowl; toss gently to combine. Cover and chill overnight. Sprinkle with cilantro before serving.
