Recipe: Sweet Pepper Salad with Goat Cheese & Basil
Sweet Pepper Salad with Goat Cheese and Basil
3 medium Bell peppers, various colours
1½ tsp 7 ml Olive oil
1½ tsp 7 ml Balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp 30 ml Goat cheese, plain, crumbled
1½ tsp 7 ml Basil, fresh, chopped
¼ tsp 1 ml Pepper
- Grill whole peppers until soft and blackened. Remove from grill and place in bag and seal top. Allow to sit for 5-10 minutes or until skin has loosened from peppers. Peel off the skin once cooled.
- Slice grilled peppers into thick slices and arrange on a platter.
- Whisk the oil and vinegar together in a small bowl. Drizzle over the peppers.
- Sprinkle with goat cheese, basil and pepper.
Tip: Short on time? Cut the peppers into quarters and grill until they start to soften. Don’t worry about peeling. Just top each piece with goat cheese, basil, pepper and a drizzle of vinegar.
