    Charmed's Note:

    I made this as part of a special dinner for someone, and both of us thought it was exceptionally good. And it looks so impressive. I wish I had a digital camera! I couldn't find the fresh chiles, so I substituted some canned poblanos I had. But I will try it with the fresh chilies as soon as I can find them. I also had some of those new guacamole tortilla chips in the house, so I crushed up a few and sprinkled maybe a tablespoon or so on top of each serving. Even plain tortilla chips would work, but you don't need them. However, I liked the little bit of crunch it gave the salad. I estimated the time not including roasting the peppers. I found the recipe at Recipegoldmine on the web.

    1. 1
      DRESSING: In a blender, purée the oils with the garlic and onion.
    2. 2
      Strain into a large jar with a lid.
    3. 3
      Add the remaining dressing ingredients to the jar.
    4. 4
      Cover and shake well, then refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
    5. 5
      ROASTED PEPPERS SALAD: Slice the roasted chiles and roasted bell peppers into ribbons, 1/2 inch thick.
    6. 6
      Arrange them decoratively on a serving platter, then pour the dressing over the chiles and peppers.
    7. 7
      Sprinkle the cheese over the pepper mixture and garnish around the edges with the lettuce.
    8. 8
      NOTE: I did not have mexican oregano, so I used epazote, and liked the results very much.
    9. 9
      Other possible substitutions could be savory, regular oregano, thyme, rosemary, or summer savory.
    10. 10
      I used about 2-3 tablespoons of shredded Monterey Jack cheese per serving, and I felt that was the perfect amount.
    11. 11
      Although the recipe did not state it, I topped it with a little bit of crushed guacamole-flavored tortilla chips.
    12. 12
      You could do the same with regular tortilla chips too, if desired.

      Very good and ohhh so pretty plus delicious and a great side to have with steak! I forgot the tortilla chips and used monterey jack cheese. I think this will be great even without the dressing and cheese --just the peppers/chilies by themselves as a great spicy topping for steak. Thanks for sharing this keeper!
