Red & Orange Bell Pepper Salad with Mint, Parsley & Lemon-Garlic Vinaigrette

Red & Orange Bell Pepper Salad with Mint, Parsley & Lemon-Garlic Vinaigrette with Seeded Bread Crisps

Every year about this time, I start craving salads. And by craving, I mean intense, must have it, primal longing. It’s as if my body, as well as my mind, knows that fresh local produce will soon be a fading memory. I find myself at the farmers markets overloading my trusty, ever ready Metro Kart with bell peppers, celery, sweet onions, corn, lettuce, fennel, chiles, and tomatoes. Plus whatever else looks amazing that day.
