Broiled bell pepper salad – Salad ớt chuông (Insalata di peperoni)

three colors bell pepper salad

Guess what is missing in the bowl! :-)

Yes, it’s summer. Even though the temperature in Amsterdam is around 15 C degrees even in mid June, it’s still summer. And thus, I’m just making lots of salad, with bell pepper, or courgette, or any refreshing sauce (will post something about a special Italian tomato sauce). Because it’s summer, it has to be something colorful, fresh. The last few days here in Amsterdam, I only see green (from the tree) and grey (from the sky) but anyway, our minds need to be cheered up.

This salad is very quick to make, the best thing out of it is the sweetness and the elegant smell from the grilled bell pepper (it’s called ‘paprika’ in Dutch). Yes, even though the bell peppers are grilled till they get the black burning skin but the flesh is so soft, giving us full flavor and so delicious. I tend to buy olives and capers from the market so they are at best. If you can’t find the fresh olives or capers, it’s optional to add in.
