Cold Busters: Red Peppers and Vitamin C


Everyone knows that Vitamin C fights colds, right? Did you know that red peppers contain almost 300% of your daily Vitamin C intake???  The research suggests that it is best to eat the peppers raw to fully benefit from its goodness.

This salad is wonderfully simple. It uses only a few seasonings in order to really highlight the flavor of the peppers. Additionally, I have found that adding lemon further enhances the peppers’ sweetness. Yum!

Sweet Pepper Salad
2 red peppers
1 yellow pepper
2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1/2 lemon
Salt and pepper to taste

Chop vegetables and put into a bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix.

For an extra-healthy, cold fighting punch, add raw garlic–another big immunity builder (see post)!

If you try the salad, please let me know how it turns out! Here’s to your good health!!
