Place the one pepper and scallion, rough chopped into Cuisinart food processor and pulse several time to get a small rough chop. Remove into medium mixing bowl.

Stir into the rough chopped sweet pepper and scallion. Scoop mixture into the sweet pepper “boats”.
I use a variety of sweet bell peppers (red, orange and yellow) and serve them on a bed of spinach that has been drizzled with a tiny bit of olive oil, lemon, and salt. It’s delicious!
