First, toss all salad ingredients in a bowl and mix well. The peppers are best cut in small strips. Then in a separate bowl of serving cup, mix the oil and lemon juice until thoroughly mixed together. Then, toss the salad with the dressing so that the salad is well covered with the dressing. Then, add the spices (salt, pepper and cumin) to your liking. This recipe stores very well and you do not have to worry about the vegetables wilting as the lemon juices keeps them fresh. This salad tastes best chilled before eating.
