This colourful salad can be served in the summer time or at Christmas as part of a buffet. It is fast, easy and can be made in advance. Feed 6 or 12, just add more ingredients and adjust the seasonings to taste
Cut peppers into quarters, removing the seeds. Trim the corners off the ends so the pepper lays relatively flat on baking dish (it chars the peppers more evenly!).
Roast halves under broiler or on grill until skin is blackened, approximately 5 - 8 minutes. (Hint: I usually take each pepper out when done and continue with the rest until all are charred).
Once removed from the heat, immediately place peppers in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Steam for about 10 minutes (this cools the peppers slightly and makes it easier for the peel to fall off). Uncover and peel off charred skins.
Combine rest of ingredients and chill for at least 2 hours.
