2heaping cups of sliced assorted bell peppersI just purchased an 8 oz bag of assorted mini peppers
One 5 oz container of greensI purchased a premade mix of kale, spinach & swiss chard
1honey crisp applethinly sliced (or use your favorite apple)
Sweet 'n' Spicy Dressing (This dressing makes a lot, 2 cups, so it'll last you for several salads!)
Add the pecans to a food processor and process until a smooth paste forms and there are no small pieces left. These process and turn the smoothest the easiest and quickest out of most nuts and work best in this dressing. After it is smooth, add the remaining dressing ingredients and process until very smooth and creamy. Taste and add any more salt or water to thin out, if desired. This dressing has a thick texture similar to a ranch dressing, but if you prefer it thinner, just add in a little bit of water. Set aside. (It thickens some in the fridge overnight, so you can just thin it out with some water or use it as a dip as well)
Slice bell peppers and apples and add to greens. Pour dressing over salad and sprinkle extra chili powder if desired for more heat over the salad.
