Grilled Pepper and Corn Salad

Get some corn and peppers?  Turn them into a delicious salad with my easy recipe.

My grilled pepper and corn salad is fresh, vibrant and bursting with flavours.  Charred veggies lend an incredible smoky taste, elevating the flavour profile of this salad.  The roasted almonds add an element of crunch while the capers add a lemony tang to the dish.  It’s healthy, delicious and wholesome.

While I love eating this salad for a light lunch, and kids love it too.  It’s a nutritious after-school snack loaded with fibre and vitamins.  You can also add an element of protein to this salad or serve it with your mains, the choice is yours.
