What are the secrets of perfectly roasted peppers?

➡️ Roasting peppers is one of the best ways to savor their flavor – the skin blisters and the flesh becomes soft and sweet. There are a variety of roasting methods to choose from. Whichever you’re going to use, remember these things when roasting peppers:
– parchment paper is a great alternative to foil because it doesn’t affect the taste of the food
– blackening and blistering the peppers are not only helpful but also give the peppers a fantastic lightly charred flavor
– red peppers are the best choice for roasting because they have the sweetest flavor

How to peel roasted peppers with ease?

➡️ When the peppers are roasted, pile them (still hot) into large food bags and seal them. Set aside to cool in the bags, then peel off the skins and scrape away any lingering seeds. This will give you roasted peppers that are ready to use in any recipe. For extra flavor, you can also add some garlic or herbs to the peppers before sealing the bag.

➡️ Alternatively, in order to remove the skin from your peppers with ease, you can either leave them to cool at room temperature or place them in a bowl of ice water to speed up the cooling. The skin should slip right off if the peppers have been roasted well. If you’re having trouble removing the skins, it may be worth cooking your peppers for slightly longer.

PRO Tips For The Greek Roasted Pepper Salad Recipe with Vinegar

➡️ Vegetable salad recipes are of many kinds and one of the types I really like is the one that includes grilled, baked, or roasted vegetables among the ingredients. Especially roasted vegetables make for a great salad or salad appetizer. I usually use onions, eggplants, bell peppers, and hot chili peppers, but there are many other options.

➡️ Salad with bell peppers is a popular dish in many parts of the world. The bell pepper is a key ingredient that gives the salad its flavor. Each region has its own unique recipe that reflects the local culinary taste. For example, in Hungary the salad has a sour-sweet dressing, in Korea it’s spicy, and in Greece, it’s pretty sour.

➡️ The salad that I share with you on this page is of Greek inspiration. I visit Greece almost every year during my summer vacation and eat every time authentic Greek food. One of the recipes that were brought to my attention is the salad with roasted red peppers. This salad is very tasty and fits perfectly with any roasted meat type. It’s especially recommended on scorching summer days when can be served as a snack or even as a frugal lunch or dinner.

➡️ As you probably have already seen in the video, making this vegetable salad is very easy. Basically, you need just to grill, bake, or roast some bell peppers, make a simple dressing, and you’re ready to serve it!

➡️ My advice is to roast the peppers on charcoal if you can, as the peppers will have a smoky taste that is perfect for giving the recipe a more refined twist. Of course, frying or baking them in the oven is a good choice if you can’t roast them for whatever reason!

➡️ If you’re wondering why you need to cover the hot roasted peppers with aluminum foil, the answer is that this step helps you to peel peppers off very easily because the steam separates peel from pepper flesh, so you can remove them quickly and without effort!

➡️ Another important tip is to prepare the salad some time in advance before serving to allow peppers to soak dressing aromas up. About 30 minutes is the minimum time recommended, but if you can wait a couple of hours or even overnight.

➡️ As for the aromatic herbs, basil is my first choice, but fresh coriander, parsley, or dill are good options as well to combine with roasted bell peppers.

➡️ Finally, maybe you’re wondering why this recipe doesn’t feature lemon juice instead of vinegar, since it’s of Greek inspiration. I have asked myself about this thing, probably, the answer is that the lemon doesn’t match the roasted pepper taste. I did not try ever to change vinegar with lemon to make the dressing, so I cannot say if the salad has a better taste or not. If you want, you could try at your own risk…
