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.

This is so delicious! The aromas of the roasting peppers and then the simmering peppers, tomatoes, and garlic were faboulous! Thanks for a great recipe!
