Quick and easy Roasted sweet peppers salad
Peppers are a vegetable rich in vitamin C and enjoy lots of appreciation in our cuisine. We like it in any form, raw or cooked, in salads or pickled, as a side dish. Sometimes I even eat roasted sweet peppers salad as a main dish, together with cottage cheese and a slice of whole wheat bread when I feel like I need a light meal.
