Roasted Pepper Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + marinating Broil: 20 min. + standing
It would have been perfect without the cayenne. I think the cayenne ruined the flavor profile and made it weirdly spicy.
This salad was, as other reviewers confirmed, a bit of a time investment. That being said, it was really good and my really picky kids even liked it!!! I'll probably save this one for company or special occasions. I will take the advice about the cutting and coring the peppers before roasting them, as that was one of the most time consuming parts.
Wonderful salad! A bit of a time investment , as with any roasted pepper recipe. Green peppers were much more difficult to peel so may replace them with another color next time. The balsamic gave the pepper mixture a dark look, not as pretty as the picture. Next time I'll replace with white balsamic to make the salad more colorful. I left off the mozzarella pearls but sprinkled with shredded mozzarella instead. I think it was even better the 2nd day. B
The most important thing I was going to write in my previous review (but sent before including) was that I did NOT peel the peppers. I took the advice of the person that suggested halving and coring the peppers before roasting, and I did NOT peel them (because I know that most of the nutrition is just under the skin). This did not take away from the dish but adds to the health quotient. D
Excellent recipe.... delicious and a fresh taste. I used a fig infused balsamic (because I didn't have regular balsamic) that worked divinely. I think a bocconcini cheese would also work really well in this Italian dish. THANKS!!!!

This is really pretty served over baby spinach leaves!
This is a beautiful salad, perfect for a home barbecue or a nicer gathering. Note that I roasted the peppers by cutting them and coring/seeding them first, then broiling them on a foil-lined baking sheet, flattened with the heel of my hand. Then I put them in a Ziploc baggie to steam. I also do not add the mozzarella cheese because my daughter has a dairy allergy, but I think it would would be phenomenal with it added.
This salad was delicious. The prep work took a bit of time, but was well worth it in the end.
