Recipe by Ms B.

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.
