  • About

A good dish to make with capers is a salad of sweet peppers and tomatoes, in which the piquancy of the capers balances the other flavours. The rich sweetness of the balsamic vinegar strikes just the right sweet-sour note.


  • 3 red sweet peppers
  • 3 yellow sweet peppers
  • 4 ripe plum tomatoes



Blister the skins of the peppers over a flame or under the grill. Put in a covered bowl for 10 minutes then peel, deseed, cut into strips and put on a serving plate.

Blanch, refresh and peel the tomatoes. Purée in a blender or liquidizer and push through a sieve into a bowl.

Peel, smash and chop the garlic and add it to the bowl. Stir in the vinegar and oil
