Grilled Red Pepper Salad


This brightly-colored Provencal salad of Roasted Peppers calls for just five ingredients. Use best quality olive oil and feel free to dip your challah in the delicious juices left on the plate. Serve with flaked tuna dressed with more of that good olive oil and brightened with a healthy spritz of lemon juice and some cracked black pepper.
