Roasted pepper salad




Last week we were having a great holiday in Bodrum area, Turkey, and on the way home bought a bag of really great village grown red peppers. That's why this week I'm really enjoying peppers every way and have even put some into my freezer. This type of salad is really common in many parts of Turkey as an appetizer. And I could eat roasted peppers just like that all day long! Really tasty!

What we need:

5-6 peppers ( colorful peppers would look even more beautiful)
2 tbsp of olive oil
2 cloves of garlic
salt
black pepper
a pinch of oregano
a handful of parsley
1/2 lemon juice
2 tbsp of pomegranate vinegar

What we have to do:

1. Pre-heat the oven to 200C. Add some baking paper on a baking tray and put washed peppers. Drizzle with some olive oil and put into the oven top layer for 30 minutes. Turn them over 15 min later. The peppers' skin will get a bit brownish. Take the tray out of the oven and cover the tray with aluminum foil and leave it to steam for 10 min. Then peel off the skin and remove the seeds.
2. In a bowl whisk lemon juice, grated garlic, salt, pepper, pomegranate vinegar, oregano and chopped parsley. Then break pepper into stripes and add into the bowl. Mix it to cover with the dressing.
3. For serving, put the salad onto the serving plate, drizzle some more olive oil add more parsley and serve! Enjoy!
