1. Cutting a Bell Pepper - First, slice off the top and bottom of the bell pepper. Then make a slice down the side and pull the pepper open. Use your hands or a small knife to remove anything inside the pepper, like the seeds. Then flatten the pepper on a cutting board. Now you can easily cut the pepper into slices and dice if desired.

2. Bringing Food to a Party - When bringing something like this easy antipasto salad to a party, use a cooking tin instead of a bowl to transport your food. The Reynolds Bakeware Pans with Lids and Carriers are perfect for events like Friendsgiving. Also, wait to add the salad dressing until you either get to the party or are ready to eat.
