    ms_bold's Note:

    If you like peppers, this recipe is for you. The roasting brings out a lot of sweetness that contrasts well with the creamy cheese in the salad. I adopted this recipe after Mean Chef (IHHDRO) left the site.

      Melt in the mouth wonderful. I used gouda cheese, as I could not find fontina. I will make this again after I master the fine art of pepper charring.

      Wow. I really wasn't sure if this was going to be good. I should have known better! It is Mean Chef after all... I had the fontina, I had the peppers, I had the desire to cook! Luckily, I also have a gas stove so those peppers blackened up nicely ;) (I prepped those the night before). I served this with your Chicken Breasts Alla Margherita Chicken Breasts alla Margherita. It was perfect for a fairly quick and scrumptious meal that was nowhere near as difficult to make for how impressive it looked. I wish I had a digital camera so I could have posted how lovely it all looked plated up. If you haven't tried this, do!
