Green & Red Pepper Salad


For 4 people

  • 2 large green peppers, halved and seeded
  • 2 large red peppers, halved and seeded
  • 1 tablespoon(s) olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon(s) sweet onions or yellow onions, finely chopped
  • 1 1/4 cup(s) cups ripe tomatoes, peeled seeded and cut into a 1/4 inch dice
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1 teaspoon(s) cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) cayenne
  • 1 tablespoon(s) extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/8 tablespoon(s) balsamic vinegar
  • 1 pinch(es) salt
  • 1 pinch(es) fresh ground black pepper


Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees. Place the peppers cut-side down on a baking sheet with a lip or a baking pan. Bake for 10 minutes. Turn peppers over and bake for an additional 5 minutes. Repeat previous step two more times. Total baking time is 25 minutes. Remove tray from oven and cover with a clean dishtowel for 10 minutes. The peppers should be soft and tender and you can easily slip off the skins. Cut the green peppers into a 1/4-inch dice. Slice the red pepper halves in half (now they will be quarters) and reserve. Add 1 tbsp. of oil to a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add onions and stir for a minute, then add garlic and stir for 30 seconds. Add the green peppers, lower the heat a bit and cook for 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, cumin and cayenne and mix well. Cook an additional 6 minutes looking for the mixture to loose some of its moisture. Combine the ingredients for the dressing in a small bowl and whisk. To assemble your salad, arrange the red pepper quarters on a serving platter -- a la spokes on a wheel or flower petals; it’s fine if they overlap a bit. Drizzle dressing over the red peppers. Spoon the green pepper-tomato mixture into the center -- allowing some to casually spill over. Alternately, you can arrange this on single serving platters with 2 red pepper quarters in a V-shape and the green pepper-tomato mixture placed where the two strips join together. This salad can be served chilled or at room temperature.
