Directions

  1. Whisk the oil, lime juice, and salt together in a medium salad bowl.
  2. Tip in the cucumber, tomatoes, orange and yellow peppers, and the shredded herbs. Toss together. Let sit in the fridge for 30 minutes for the flavors to develop. Taste for salt. Serve chilled or at room temperature.

Chef Tips

For a quick light lunch, add protein and a lot of flavor, by sprinkling ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese over the salad before serving. You can use 1 medium English cucumber instead of the garden cucumbers.
