20160530_140907-1

This is a colorful, flavorful and super easy recipe for any family get together or special occasion.  It’s best if made the night before and allowed to sit over night in a refrigerator.

  • 1/2 lettuce head
  • 1/2 bag of spinach
  • 1 bag of frozen green peas – thawed
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 1 orange pepper
  • 1-2 seedless cucumbers
  • 3-4 seeded tomatoes

Chop, slice and dice everything.   Mix lettuce and spinach together and begin layering in the trifle bowl.

  1. Lettuce/Spinach
  2. Tomatoes
  3. Yellow Pepper
  4. Green Peas
  5. Orange Pepper
  6. Cucumbers

Don’t like a vegetable listed – switch them out!  Make it fun and colorful!   I’ve seen radishes and purple onions used in this recipe.
