Sweet Lime and Pepper Salad

Simple, quick and easy, this salad can be prepared in minutes. Capsicum is a much ignored salad vegetable that has been combined with lots of colours and flavours which perfectly complements the delicate flavour of sweet lime. This salad is a great accompaniment for a continental main course and is also a good choice for takeaway lunches. To keep salad fresh and crisp add salt just before you eat it. This is because salt in a salad draws out all the water from the vegetables and leaving them limp.
