  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper, if desired

    Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix lemon juice, mustard, basil and thyme; set aside.

    Add oil to same skillet; heat over medium-high heat. Add bell peppers; cook 6 to 8 minutes, stirring frequently, just until tender.
