"The peppers are coming on strong now" is what the man that sold me these beauties said on Saturday at the market. I love peppers. I like them in scrambled eggs, in salads, cut in strips and dipped in hummus... you get the idea. However, since I neglected to make mediterranean pepper salad even once this summer, that is what these bell peppers are destined to become.
I chopped and soaked and pitted, then chopped some more and mixed it all together while watching the Ryder cup on Saturday. It's best to have something to take your mind off things when your team is losing.
If you have a few more backyard barbeque dinners planned before it gets too cold to get the grill out, make this salad. You will not be sorry.
Here's the recipe. Yes, it's from Smitten Kitchen. No I am not her agent. I just always like her recipes. It's hard to argue with success.
P.S. Congrats to all my European friends on the stellar performance by their golfers.
