A few weeks ago I had a pizza making night and ended up with a few leftovers: peppers, artichoke hearts, fresh mozzarella, etc. I decided to take these ingredients and turn them into a Super Easy Antipasto Salad with Blistered Sweet Peppers.
Why are peppers so expensive??? Seriously, in Arlington, VA where I live, one single red or yellow pepper can cost around $3-4!! I think that's crazy. However, when I saw a bag of little colorful peppers for about $6, I decided to splurge. They were too adorable to pass up.
To make blistered peppers:
Preheat the oven to 450 with a cast iron skillet inside the oven.
In a bowl, drizzle the mini peppers with olive oil and season with salt.
Add the peppers to a preheated cast iron skillet in a single layer.
Roast for 30 minutes flipping the peppers at least once during the process.
To make the Super Easy Antipasto Salad with Blistered Sweet Peppers:
Make a pretty platter combining blistered sweet peppers, fresh mozzarella, artichoke hearts, olives, and avocado. Drizzle with olive oil.
This is what I thought of my creation:
Do you have any fun weekend plans? I'm learning how to make bagels, hanging out with good friends over dinner and taking naps!
