In-season pepper take us through breakfast, lunch and dinner with these healthy, light summer recipes.

Sliding a knife through its glossy skin, the pepper’s crunchy disposition is immediately audible. We hear it when we’re chomping away on a raw slice and we relish it still when it’s cooked off into a sweeter, softer version of itself. Unlike a scorching hot chili pepper, the bell pepper is known for its unique, refreshing sweetness. Whether red, green, orange, purple or yellow, bell peppers can take us from breakfast to dinnertime, breathing color and texture into our meals.

Looking for ways to incorporate abundant, in-season bell peppers into three main meals? Take a peek out our list of breakfast-to-dinner recipes.
