Using Bell Peppers as a Container
No, not for cooked stuffed peppers. Use them raw as a container for tuna salad or egg salad. Peppers are sweetly crunchy. They are sturdy so they won't fall apart. Use whichever color you prefer. I like red, yellow, and orange. Core them, dumping out the seeds, and cut them into big chunks. Fill up the inside with the salad. It's a nice alternative to bread for a summer time lunch or snack. Garnish the pieces with olive slices or drained capers. You can also serve these as a little appetizer.
It's a great way to get some more veggies into your diet!
