Mediterranean Roasted Tri-Color Bell Pepper Salad

READY IN: 25hrs 20mins
Recipe by COOKGIRl

(Sorry, I meant broiled.) Another recipe that demands quality ingredients. Please *do not* use green bell peppers in this recipe-they are too bitter tasting for this salad. This can also be served as an appetizer. Being typically Spanish, this is on the oily side. --fyi-- From Classic Spanish.

this is delicious I make it frequently. Small change, I add fresh cilantro to the olive oil before tossing.
