This Cold Pepper Salad is delicious and so easy to make! I don’t know about you, but I love not having to use my oven in the summer, which makes this light, colorful and flavorful dish the answer to my warm weather mealtime prayers!

A honey-infused dressing is what makes this salad so special! I love adding it to the salad a few hours before serving so that it has time to sit and marinate the veggies! While any oil will work in this recipe, olive oil is my favorite. Olive oil has a low smoke point, which means it is best used in dressings and marinades where no cooking is required. The olive flavor pairs so well with this recipe, but avocado oil would work too.
