Feel free to substitute the vegetables in the recipe for what you prefer or have on hand.

Just use what you have! I promise this easy recipe does not disappoint.

Don’t have grape tomatoes? Use normal tomatoes and just dice them.

Any type of bell peppers will do. We have used a combination of red, green and yellow.

Like onions? Red onions are delicious in this salad. Feta cheese is also tasty sprinkled on top.

Just make the salad your own and use what you love.  Try red pepper flakes if you like a little heat.

It is easy to modify for what you have on hand and this really helps your budget. By cooking like this, it really helps me to save money on groceries. It is a huge help to our budget.
