Jack-O-Peppers

Salad can't get much spookier than this Jack-O-Peppers recipe.


A fun way to celebrate Halloween and still get in enough vegetables. Sweet bell peppers make the perfect stand in as Jack-O-Lanterns, complete with scary faces. However, these spooky peppers are for eating not setting ablaze.


All you need is a quick simple salad and they are ready to serve. I've used a spring mix of greens and a few additional vegetables, but any salad veggies will do. Try to pick a mix of greens that will puff out of the tops like spooky monster hair for full effect.


If the goal is low-carb, skip the optional croutons. I like to use a light lemon vinaigrette as dressing.

 

Ingredients

(Makes 4 servings)

  • 4 sweet bell peppers (red, yellow, orange, and or green)

  • 2 cups spring mix greens

  • 1/2 cup cucumber, diced

  • 8 cherry tomatoes, halved

  • 1/2 cup croutons (optional)

dressing:

 

Directions

Wash peppers thoroughly and pat dry. With a sharp knife, carefully cut scary Jack-O-Lantern faces into the sweet bell peppers. Cut off stem top and clean out the seeds and white pith. If needed, trim a thin layer from the bottoms of the peppers to flatten them out and help them stand. Careful not to cut too much.


In a small bowl prepare the lemon vinaigrette.


Into the bottom of the bell peppers, add 1/4 of the cucumber and 4 cherry tomato halves. Top with greens so that they stick out like wild hair. Add a few croutons to each and drizzle with vinaigrette. Serve.
