Fajita Garden Salad Recipe

One of the best things about home gardening is I can grow just about every vegetable that goes into a Fajita.  In this post, I share my favorite Fajita Garden Salad Recipe.

  • Big Bertha Pepper
  • Anaheim
  • Sweet Red Pepper
  • Hungarian Banana Pepper
  • California Wonder

  1. Hi Bren~~ You’re definitely an inspiration. Would you believe that just today I took a bunch of my saved flower seed and tossed it around in my garden? Not so much the edible, but, like you I’m partial to seeds as well. Your recipe looks delicious.

  2. We still have some bell peppers in the freezer as well. I hope to have more veggies in the freezer this year. You recipe looks wonderful! I’m not going to admit I have a ‘seed’ problem because I don’t want it fixed…lol

  3. I’m with you on the seed-aholic problem! Once you get started it’s almost impossible to stop. I found a company in the UK last year that sells old fashioned seed varieties that you can’t normally got hold of – I’ve been hooked ever since!

    Beautiful pictures – I am so hungry now!!
