Rainbow Salad

Rainbow salad is a name that I coined for this salad as it has so many colours. I tried it for the first time when I had some very dear friends over for lunch. They enjoyed the salad so much that I was indeed surprised. I do not normally see Indians enjoying salads unless it is in the traditional form of raita. Tastes are changing, I’m glad to see. But there was high praise heaped upon this recipe. So it was not just changing tastes, but something special in the recipe itself!

Ingredients
1 red bell pepper (Shimla mirch, kodamilagai), chopped fine
1 yellow bell pepper (Shimla mirch, kodamilagai), chopped fine
1 green bell pepper (Shimla mirch, kodamilagai), chopped fine

1 tbsp raisins, chopped
