How to Make Grilled Pepper and Crunchy Caper Salad


  1. Place the peppers on a lined baking tray and brush them with oil. Grill them for 10-15 minutes turning them until the skins are well charred. Put the peppers in a plastic bag and seal for 5 mins to loosen the skins.
  2. Meanwhile, crush the garlic and a generous pinch of salt to a paste using a pestle and mortar. Add the vinegar and oil, and blend to make a dressing. Strip the skins and seeds from the peppers, then cut into pieces. Place in a bowl.
  3. Pour over the dressing and scatter with the capers, olives and pine nuts.
  4. Serve with a bruschetta drizzled with extra virgin oil.
  5. Buon Appetito!
