  • 1 orange pepper
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon champagne vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons thyme or mint
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and left whole

  1. Set the whole peppers directly on the racks of a gas burner with the flame on medium-high.  Using tongs, rotate the peppers frequently until they are evenly charred and the skin has cracked in places.
  2. Either transfer the peppers to a bowl and cover with plastic (see Chef Tips).  Let sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes or longer.  Peel and rub the skins off with your fingers. Deseed the peppers.  Run under water to remove any excess char.
  3. In a bowl mix the roasted peppers with olive oil, vinegar, thyme, garlic, and salt.  Let marinate in the refrigerator for at least four hours.

Chef Tips

The best way to remove the skins is to pop the peppers into either a brown paper bag or plastic shopping bag. Then depending on the bag used, either fold or tie the top shut. Doing this allows the peppers to steam, which pushes the skin away from the flesh making them 100% easier to peel. If a bag is not handy, then put them in a bowl as directed in step 2. If champagne vinegar is not available, substitute with white wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar.
