A holiday brunch? your meal is incomplete with this beautiful grilled pepper and cheese salad. Use red, yellow and green peppers to make the salad look full of colour. Served on a bed of crisp lettuce, this recipe calls for alfalfa sprouts too, making it rich in nutrients. The zingy olive oil, vinegar, pepper and sugar dressing makes this one of the best salads that is enjoyed by all.
