I got this recipe from my sister-in-law who served this with grilled sword fish. It has been a hit in my family ever since. I find the 8 ounce bottle of dressing is enough, but some people may want more, which won't hurt the salad.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 5 tomatoes
- 4 green bell peppers
- 1 large red onion
- 1 (8 ounce) bottle zesty Italian dressing
Slice tomatoes and peppers and set aside. Slice the red onion and separate the rings. Using a large bowl with a lid, layer the tomatoes, green pepper and onion until all vegetables are used. Shake the bottled dressing and pour over the vegetable layers. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours or, for best results, overnight. Before serving, turn bowl upside down to make sure all vegetables are coated with the dressing.
