This is a very pretty dish to serve at any get-together. I always make a double batch so everyone can have seconds.—Bonnie Hawkins, Elkhorn, Wisconsin


  • 1 large sweet red pepper
  • 1 large green pepper
  • 2 cups whole fresh mushrooms
  • 1 small red onion, sliced
  • 1/2 cup pitted ripe olives
  • 1/3 cup Italian salad dressing
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • Lettuce leaves


  1. Broil peppers 4 in. from the heat until skins blister, about 10 minutes. With tongs, rotate peppers a quarter turn. Broil and rotate until all sides are blistered and blackened. Immediately place peppers in a bowl; cover and let stand for 15-20 minutes.
  2. Peel off and discard charred skin. Remove stems and seeds. Cut peppers into thin slices. In a large bowl, combine the peppers, mushrooms, onion and olives.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the salad dressing, garlic, basil, salt, oregano and pepper. Pour over vegetables; toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Serve on lettuce leaves.
