Great recipe! Easy to prepare and very pretty in a nice serving bowl. A couple of test tasters thought it might benefit from a splash of apple cider vinegar. I agree that something was missing, but not sure if that was it. Thanks for the great recipe!

I make this every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas using soft fresh mozzarella and fresh peppers and herbs from my garden. It is a family favorite.

Really good, lots of flavor. My only change was to add some oil-packed sun dried tomatoes. I cut them into small pieces and added them with the roasted red peppers, then used some of the oil from the tomatoes in the recipe. Delicious!
