mixed yellow & white makes the best salad
1 large pepper equals about a cup
1 large red onion equals about a cup
each type of vinegar (apple cidar or white or balsalmic etc) lends its own texture and flavor to the salad use which you like best
I put the vinaigrette in a bottle & shake it up then pour it on...you could heat it to melt the sugar if you wish.
Saving the liquid off the salad is good for a vinaigrette for a lettuce salad or a dip for something.
