This colorful, crunchy salad is a fun twist on traditional Greek Salad. It's pretty on individual plates or in a large glass salad bowl. Leftovers are great for the next day's lunch.
- 1 medium cucumber peeled, seeded, diced (~2 cups)
- 1 yellow pepper seeded, diced
- 1 orange pepper seeded, diced
- 1 pint grape tomatoes halved
