"My family really liked this recipe. It was easy to make and very colourful. I used a yellow bell pepper for added colour. I also added snow peas or sugar snap peas, cut on the diagonal to bring the green colour into the salad - this also added some nice crunch. aprilstringfellow perhaps could substitute the sugar snap peas for the green pepper."

"What can I substitute the green peppers with? My tummy doesn't like peppers. :("
