Literally you're going to taste the rainbow in this colorful, healthy and fresh bell pepper salad

Bell peppers have a lot going for them. They're low in calories and are packed with immune system boosting nutrients and vitamins such as vitamin A, C, potassium, folic acid, and fiber. For that and because they're so delicious, bell peppers can be added to any salad to give it an added crunch and a ton of flavor. Also, you can have bell peppers on their own or dipped with hummus as a simple snack, replacing chips or other snacks that are high in calories.

This recipe is so fresh and is better had on a hot summer day.
