Chicken and Peppers Salad:
Summertime in a Bowl!


Monia's Chicken and Peppers Salad!

This chicken and peppers recipe is exactly what it says!

It’s still winter outside as I’m writing up this recipe. In case you can't tell I’m getting a bit tired of winter...

I’ve decided to bring some colours into our house. That’s because we don’t have enough sun these days. Some red, green, orange, yellow - what a great combination - this is exactly what I need! Summertime in the middle of winter!

I love this recipe and I guarantee that you'll love it too!

OK Chef. No more writing! I’m hungry this time. Let's start making our recipe!
