Grilled Sweet Peppers

Grilled Sweet Peppers

Again, I’m going to give credit to FIORE for this recipe. I highly recommend their olive oil and balsamic vinegars. However, you can substitute. I’ve been using FIORE because we won and purchased some when we were in Rockland, Maine.

I love sweet peppers–the flavor is outstanding. Following the directions provided below with give you some great results. This is a great appetizer.

Grilled Sweet Peppers

2 lbs. sweet baby (small) bell peppers (green, red, orange, purple, and/or yellow)
1 tsp coarse salt
1/4 cup FIORE Garlic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 tbls FIORE Traditional 18 year aged Balsamic Vinegar
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

Method:
(Use large peppers with stem end cut off and seeds removed if baby peppers are not available).
Core, seed, and rinse peppers. Cut each pepper into quarters and place in a large ziplock plastic bag.
In a small bowl, combine salt, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and pepper; mix well. Pour sauce over pepper quarters.  Reseal bag and shake to distribute sauce.
Preheat barbecue grill. Remove peppers from sauce. Place peppers, smooth-side down, on hot grill. Cook 6 to 8 minutes (turning occasionally) or until lightly charred on both sides. Remove peppers from grill; either leave in quarters or slice into 1-inch-wide strips.

Arrange chunks or strips on a platter, alternating colors. Sprinkle with crumbled feta cheese.  Makes 4 servings.

Thanks for sharing FIORE. You can order directly from FIORE if you wish.
