Recipe Notes

DeLallo Roasted Red Pepper Bruschetta and Kraft Tuscan House Italian Dressing is recommended and was used in this recipe.
I like to use 2 use 2 half peppers, one red and one orange or yellow just for a pop of color but you can definitely use just one pepper if you prefer.
*This salad is tossed with 1/2 cup of Italian Dressing. You will probably want to add another 1/4 cup or so before serving depending on how long it sits.
