  • “This is very good and so colorful too!I did scale way back on the red pepper and onion tho as it seemed like way too much for our tastes.I used maybe a quarter of a small red onion and just a quarter of the red bell pepper and used only about 1/3 of a cup of the parmesan.A flavorful salad indeed, thanks for sharing!
