1 green pepper, 1 red bell pepper, 1 yellow bell pepper, 1 orange bell pepper, 2 jalapeño peppers, 1 shallot, 1/4 c. vegetable oil, 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard, 2 limes, fresh ground sea salt, fresh cracked black pepper
Cut peppers and mince shallot, set aside in bowl. Whisk together oil, mustard, lime juice, lime zest, salt and pepper. Pour dressing over peppers and toss gently. Place in refrigerator and allow to set for several hours before serving.
*Bonus if you can get ahold of a purple bell pepper or white bell pepper.
