Description

This salad is a healthy and filling dish that is studded with fresh vegetables. It gets its vibrant green color from green bell pepper, peas, and scallions, all of which also add a ton of flavor. Try this dish with a roasted chicken breast or a piece of grilled steak for a complete and filling meal or add a spoonful over a lightly dressed green salad for a healthy and light lunch.
