grilled & pickled peperonata, kale, & radicchio salad
Yields: 4 portions Approx. prep time: 30 min
  • 4 Sweet bell peppers
  • ¼ cup Fresh basil, chopped
  • ¼ cup Extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp White wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Mustard seeds
  • ½ tsp Black pepper
  • ¼ tsp Sea salt
  1. Preheat a grill pan or bbq to grill the sweet bell peppers.
  2. Cut and core the peppers so you just have clean pepper pieces. Discard core and seeds.
  3. Grill the peppers lightly, only 2-3 minutes, enough so that they start to soften (some grill marks and charring is fine, but not essential).
  4. Transfer the warm sweet bell peppers to a stainless steel bowl.
  5. Toss with the olive oil, vinegar, mustard seeds, salt, and pepper.
  6. Cover the bowl and allow the sweet bell peppers to marinate as they slowly steam and then cool down.
  7. Cut the peppers into fine julienned strips, then recombine with the reserved juices.
  8. Add the basil and re-season with salt and pepper if necessary.
