Red Pepper and Feta Salad

Recipe by Halcyon Eve
READY IN: 55mins




  • To make dressing: place garlic, ginger, and oils into a small pan over medium heat. Cook just until the garlic turns white; do not allow garlic to brown. If garlic browns, toss out and start over. Transfer to a bowl and allow to cool to room temperature. The dressing may be made several hours in advance.
  • Roast the pepper quarters under a broiler until skin blackens and blisters. Wrap in damp paper towels and place in a small paper bag, folding top down to close. Allow to sit until cooled enough to handle, 15-20 minutes.
  • Peel, trim, and cut each quarter into halves.
  • Slice the feta into 8 slices.
  • On each of 4 salad plates, place one strip of pepper. Add a slice of feta, then top with 2 basil leaves. Repeat layers, fanning or arranging the layers so that each layer is visible.
  • Cover loosely with damp paper towels and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • To serve, bring salads to room temperature. Drizzle the dressing over the salads and grind pepper over the top to taste. Garnish with a sprig of basil leaves and serve with lime wedges to squeeze over the salad.
