What better way to celebrate Earth Day/Meatless Monday than with this healthy and delicious orange pepper and tomato salad? This recipe is pleasing on the palette and on the eyes, with its bright orange, red, and green flavors (thanks to the peppers, tomatoes, and celery, respectively).
And here’s the best part: it only has 99 calories and half a gram of fat per serving!
The delicious homemade honey mustard dressing recipe is really simple and adds a fantastic flavor to this dish. I used a combination of Greek yogurt, honey, and Dijon mustard. If you’re sensitive to dairy, omit the yogurt and add a little extra virgin olive oil instead (the number of calories will increase though). I used fat-free Greek yogurt but full fat is fine and won’t add a substantial amount to the calorie count.
I also recommend buying organic vegetables for this recipe. Click here to read more about which vegetables you should buy organic and which ones you can skip.
