Similar to a chunky pico de gallo, this side salad recipe provides an array of antioxidants from the cucumber, bell peppers, tomato, green onions, and garlic.
2 cups English cucumber, chopped
1 cup chopped red bell pepper
1 cup chopped yellow bell pepper
1 cup chopped plum tomato
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 garlic cloves, minced
6 red leaf lettuce leaves (optional)
How to Make It
Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Combine lemon juice and next 5 ingredients (lemon juice through garlic) in a small bowl; stir well with a whisk. Pour dressing over vegetables; toss gently to coat. Serve salad on lettuce leaves, if desired.
