Recipe by KosherCook
This is an Israeli dish of roasted red peppers and tomatoes. It is served cold and is considered a salad although I use that term loosely. It is usually served with Challah which is dipped into the salad.
- 2 lbs tomatoes
- 1 lb red bell pepper
- 3 garlic cloves, quartered
- 3 dried chilies (optional)
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons hot paprika
