Who hates bell peppers??

Bell pepper is listed as a one of the top kids disliking veggies.

I know this green pepper salad doesn't look instagramy at all!!haha!

However, the taste is certainly guaranteed.

I really want you to try this recipe, especially for those who don't like green peppers.

The green pepper soaked up all the good umami dashi flavor which is essential for Japanese food, as a result, the distinct bitterness of bell pepper gets mild.

My picky kids approved recipe!

I call them as a veggie detector since they easily find and take out many veggies I sneaked in. haha

Hope you and your kids will like that!
