"Thanks Beema, I too thought it sounded great as a cold salad and was wondering if that would work. Glad to hear it does."

"Very nice recipe. If you coat the inside of the peppers with a little olive oil before stuffing, the peppers will cut like warm butter. Make sure you use Hellmann's mayo and not miracle whip. Colored peppers are expensive and you could ruin them with a cheap product like MW."

"At first glance, I thought this was for a cold salad dish, and thought "how delightful." Then when I saw that it was an oven baked meal, I realized we actually had two recipes in one idea. I made the salad and served it in fresh, crisp raw red peppers, and loved it. Then, tried it with the peppers and salad baked, and actually it is a toss up which is better."
