During the summer, a dear family friend generously shares fresh bell peppers, cucumbers, and tomatoes from their family's flourishing garden. Perfect in a salad. Or, sliced and sprinkled with salt and ground black pepper. If desired, add croutons, shredded bell peppers, cheese, and grilled chicken to make this simple garden salad a meal. Enjoy!
