Simple but absolutely delicious. Moroccan cuisine is a favorite of mine, and so are bell peppers. I used 1 red, 1 yellow and 1 green for the color. When I picked this recipe, I made note of the ingredients but not the directions. Therefore, when I got home after buying the peppers, and because I was in a hurry to take a photo of this before I lost the natural light, I started cutting the peppers up right away. Then when I paid some attention to the directions, I realized I should have roasted them first:( Well, no matter, I love crispy fresh peppers and this was delicious! Thanks, PanNan, for a really enjoyable side salad:) BF liked this too.
I love roasted peppers! This was a recipe, I was able to put together quickly..I grilled the peppers on the outdoor grill! After grilling the peppers, I put them in a brown paperbag to speed up the process. Thank you!
