Author Notes: I just put together my favorite foods when I had tons of peppers and no tomatoes. Didn't want to make pizza, so decided to make a salad instead. - loubaby

- 3/4 pound Fresh Buffalo Mozzarella, sliced
- 3/4 cup fresh basil leaves, torn
- 1/2 vidalia onion, julienne
- 12 anchovy fillets, drained, cut thin strips
- 2 tablespoons capers, drained
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar
- 1 tablespoon fresh, crushed garlic
- 2 teaspoons sherry vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- Place whole peppers on hot grill or under broiler and char until blackened all over completely. Remove to brown paper bag;close bag and let stand in sink about 20 minutes. Remove stem and seeds and most of black charred skin. Slice peppers and place in bowl.
