Sweet peppers salad

Peppers are a vegetable rich in vitamin C and are the subject of lots of appreciation in our kitchen! We like it in any form, raw or cooked, roasted on a grill, in salads or pickled, as a side dish or appetizer. Sometimes I even eat this roasted peppers salad as a main dish, together with cottage cheese and a slice of whole wheat bread when I feel like I need a light meal, especially in hot summer days! This lovely pepper salad is so refreshing right out of the fridge on those crazy dog days!

This pepper salad recipe is highly popular in this household and we love to enjoy it all year round, most times next to a meat dish that sometimes can be a bit too heavy.

Other salads you might like:

When roasted, the peppers should not get too soft or they’ll lose their nutritive qualities. Plus they won’t be as easy to eat if they’re soft. This roasted peppers salad tastes quite special when paired with crushed garlic which makes it even more flavorful.

This salad is as delicious as is simple and quick to prepare. I like to be able to make this tasty salad in winter too so I freeze the peeled roasted peppers; the texture and flavor preserve perfectly. I just defrost them, make the garlic/vinegar sauce and my delicious salad is ready in no time.
