Mini Sweet Pepper and Raspberry Salad {Packed Lunch Edition}

Sweet Pepper and Raspberry Salad | Dinner of Herbs

I have a new favourite vegetable.

Mini sweet peppers.  Oh my.  Now I want them on everything.

Their crispness and slight sweetness complement the soft raspberries, while the almonds provide a nice crunch, and the Romano cheese adds some richness to the salad.

The colourfulness of this salad will likely draw envious comments from your lunch partners.  You have been warned.
