Sweet green peppers can be served raw in a salad. Blistering them under a hot grill or over a flame so that you can peel off the skins has the same effect as blanching – it removes the bitter flavour. This is a good method for salads, since it preserves the bright green colour of the pepper flesh.


  • 2 green sweet peppers
  • 100 g/4 oz salami
  • 50


Place the peppers under a hot grill and cook them until the skins crinkle and split. Turn occasionally so they grill on all sides – about 5 minutes. Alternatively spear the peppers with a fork and hold over a gas flame until the skins char and split. While hot, peel or scrape away the skins under cold water. Halve the peppers and remove the seeds from inside, then shred the pepper flesh.
