Here is what you will need...
1 onion, medium, cut ½ inch slices
1 red bell pepper, large, diced
2 celery ribs, diced ½ inch slices
8 oz. package cream cheese, soft
2 tsp. spice mix *
The spice mix is:
*1 tbsp. granulated garlic
½ tbsp. onion powder
SPICES include: 1 tsp. dried parsley, ½ tsp. black pepper, ¼ tsp. paprika, ¼ tsp. salt.
Mix together and measure out 2 tsp. and mix with 1 tsp. orange zest, finely grated.
Do not mix the zest with the spice mix. You will only use 2 teaspoons from the mix. The rest you will save. But the fresh orange zest will not last without spoiling in a few days. Maybe up to 5 days in the refrigerator.
Here we have served the "Red Potato and Sweet Pepper Salad" with some sliced BBQ chicken breast and some pieces of cilantro. Cilantro is not only good for flavoring food, but is also good for digestion.
