I have eaten similar recipes BD= Before Diabetis and am glad to see that an old favorite can still be eaten. I love the green peppers in it too! YUM! PR

I love the idea of the bell peppers with the cuccumbers. This is so low carb and low calorie that eating half of it is not too much and would make a great lunch. You could even add some sliced thin turkey on the side and not get any more carbs. Great idea for using cucumbers during this summer season.
