Summer Salad: Roasted pepper with Greek feta cheese

Summer Salad: Roasted pepper with Greek feta cheese

Mini sweet little peppers is one of those vegetables that I always have on my fridge because they are not only very healthy but very versatile also. One of my favourite ways of eating them is in salads and adding just few other ingredients. This simple summer salad has just 5 ingredients and what you will need to do is just roast the peppers, then add feta cheese, fresh dill,salt and a good Olive oil. The benefits of this salad are multiple and I highly recommend to try it.

Fresh peppers

Ingredients:

500 gr of mini little peppers

100 gr of Feta cheese

Fresh Dill (you can use the dried one instead)

Good Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Salt

Preparation:

First carefully wash the peppers and then place then on a tray and roast them (on grill option) for about 25-30 it really depends upon the oven making sure to turn them from side to side once they are slightly brown. Once they are roasted (you could take the skin awayΒ but I prefer to leave it as the skin of the mini peppers is very thin and besides it is very good for you) add the other ingredients, and that’s it. Love the simplicity of this salad and the fact that you have ingredients which are really good for your body:

Pepper- a source of Vitamin C, Vitamin E and six of carotenoids (beta-carotene,alpha-carotene, etc.)

Dill- a very good source of Vitamin C and manganese

Olive oil- one of the healthiest food in the world, full of phenolic antioxidants Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Omega-6.

Feta cheese- a very good source of Calcium.

You could even have the grilled pepper version (just grill them on a non stick pan and add the other ingredients) I prefer the roasted version simply because it is easier. Please do try it I am sure you will like the results, I love preparing it when IΒ come back from work and I Β feel tired to cook or even if you go for a picnic or having a BBQ.

Enjoy!!! πŸ™‚

  1. I never thought of roasting the peppers! Doh! But I prefer this kind of salad with basil, and a bit of crushed garlic. I tried making it with the ready roasted peppers that you get in jars, but it wasn’t very nice – too slimy.

  9. I like peppers. Looks like a fun recipe. Do you roast them whole? If not, isn’t it a nuisance to remove the seeds while you’re eating?

    1. Thank you for stopping by, I roast them whole and since these are mini sweet peppers they have only few seeds that you can easily take them off after they are roasted (but to tell you the truth, I eat them whole sometimes ) πŸ™‚

  13. I like the taste of roasted peppers – yum..:) I already got my answer about the seeds in one of the comments above…This peppers must be little because I could not eat the seeds of big ones..:)

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by and the nice comment tastasty. Yes the peppers are really tiny but if you don’t want to eat the seeds, just take them away after they are roasted (they come off really easily).
