Roasted Peppers have that cooked, but still fresh taste which I just love. Bell Peppers in general are one of my favorite foods, fresh and raw, or roasted and warm. But this Roasted Peppers Salad is the best.

Strangely enough, I have seen that kids prefer this roasted cold Bell Peppers and they are not that crazy over raw Bell Peppers.

I had my first taste as a kid at my aunt’s house when they were having a BBQ and I absolutely fell in love with all kinds of Peppers.

I do not think my Mom or Dad ever made anything with Bell Peppers.

It was only years later when I was married and beginning to experiment with cooking that I made a salad with green Bell Peppers. Which reminded me of the ones I had at my aunt’s many years previous.

Ever since that first salad I made, Bell Peppers have been on our grocery list every single week.

I have mentioned before that we started a small vegetable garden and one of the musts to plant were … yep, Bell Peppers !

We had quite a turn out with the first lot and after that kept growing and we were actually very surprised as we had only expected a couple.

Anyhow, it is definitely worth planting some as they are most delicious when picked freshly from the garden and used straight away in a dish – cooked or raw.

Roast the Peppers ahead of time if possible !

I normally roast the Peppers the night before, or early in the morning. By the time I need to throw together this salad it only takes a couple of minutes.

For this specific salad I also prefer a coarser kind of crushed (more minced than crushed) garlic, but you can use whichever you prefer.

Lovely salad, Linda. Bell peppers show up in most Cajun and Creole dishes--I tend to cook with them every day. I enjoy roasted peppers, especially the red ones. Thank you for sharing your salad. The pine nuts add a really nice touch!
