Felfel B'tomatish - Algerian Pepper & Tomato Salad

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Um Safia

This is a classic Algerian 'salad' dish. You can either grill the tomatoes & peppers over an open flame, deep fry them or roast them. My family loves this recipe & we always mop it up with fresh bread! You can also serve this as part of a mezze selection. The vinegar is of course optional but it acts as a flavour enhancer so I do recommend at least trying a little of the salad with a few drops of vinegar on!

Very nice salad. I added some jalapenos to the mix and splashed on the vinegar towards the end and we ate it with fresh bread like suggested alongside Kofta and rice. I think next time I'll make it with a little bit more olive oil /water for added dipping sauce. Thanks. Made for Ramadan Tag 09.
