Tomato & Pepper Salad


Tomatoes are an excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin A, and vitamin K. They are also a very good

source of molybdenum, potassium, manganese, dietary fiber, chromium, and vitamin B1. In addition,

tomatoes are a good source of vitamin B6, folate, copper, niacin, vitamin B2, magnesium, iron,

pantothenic acid, phosphorus, vitamin E and protein.

With salads being a part of our everyday meal, i literally run out of ideas. I try different colored vegetables

to get different nutrients and also not to get bored with the same type of salad everyday. Try to replace

your regular salt with Nu salt to get a potassium rich and low sodium salad.

Preparation Time – 10 minutes

Cooking Time – none

Serves – 2


Tomatoes – 2 medium sized chopped finely

Chopped bell pepper – 1/2 cup(red, green and orange) into fine pieces

Freshly ground black pepper – 1 tsp or to taste


1) Combine chopped tomatoes, bell pepper, onion, cilantro in a bowl.

2) To this add nu salt, lemon juice, olive oil and black pepper.
