Cook time: 10 min
- 2 whole large yellow peppers
- 2 whole large red peppers
- 2 whole large green peppers
- 1 whole large tomato, thinly sliced
- 2 tbsp. capers
- 2 tbsp. freshly chopped italian parsley
- 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
- 2 - 4 ds. kosher salt to taste
- 2 - 4 ds. freshly ground black pepper, to taste

- 1. Preheat broiler or grill. Grill peppers until blistered (about 5 to 10 minutes), turning often.
- 2. Remove from oven or grill and place in paper bags for 5 minutes. Fold tops of the paper bags over and tape shut to enclose steam. Allow peppers to stand for 10 minutes or up to an hour. (This step can be done a day ahead of time).
- 3. After the 10 minutes have past, carefully release the steam from the paper bags. Peel the skin off the peppers, cut off their tops and slice into 1/2 inch strips. Place in a salad bowl and add the capers and parsley.
- 4. In a small bowl whisk together the olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Add the tomato to the bowl and drizzle over peppers. Stir gently to coat.
- 5. Taste, and season with salt and pepper as needed. Serve at room temperature.
