Toss a colorful mix of grilled bell peppers with briny olives, sweet sun-dried tomatoes and balsamic vinaigrette for a lovely side dish. Or spread crostini with goat cheese and top it with this salad for an easy summer appetizer.

Altered a little and ate about a cupful in 1 sitting
I didn't use olives and only had a dash of salt. Topped the salad off with goat cheese and it was a great side salad!

This dish has a very strong flavor that works much better as a relish than a side dish. It's listed as 4 servings - I can't imagine who could eat 1/4 of this at a sitting.

This simple recipe was surprisingly delightful! I paired it with Rosemary-Garlic Shrimp Skewers for a delicious healthy grilled supper. For lunch the next day I put it in a wrap with smoked turkey and shredded part-skim mozzarella.
