Sweet and Sour Peppers

By • August 30, 2010 • 17 Comments



Author Notes: One of my favorite jobs was working for a corporate caterer in Stamford, CT. This recipe is based on a dish we occasionally served at Friday Lunch.mrslarkin

Serves 3 or more

  • 3 red bell peppers, seeded
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine, balsamic, or sherry vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar or honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt, or more to taste
  • a few fresh thyme sprigs, or more to taste
  1. Slice peppers into strips, about ¾ inches thick. Place on sheet pan and roast in a hot oven until just warm. Don’t char. You want to retain some crunch. Set aside. When cool, remove to a large mixing bowl.
  2. Whisk together olive oil, vinegar, sugar and salt. Pour over peppers and toss. Check for salt. Place in shallow serving bowl.
  3. Strip off the thyme leaves and sprinkle over the peppers.

My husband grew up in Litchfield, which is vastly different now than when he was a lad. Love your flavors, colors, and crunch.

These sound delicious! Btw, I love your neck of the woods...my husband grew up in Pound Ridge - in the Hamlet - and it was my home away from home in college.

Thanks, gingerroot! Wow, you guys really flew the coop! LOVE the Hamlet. We live in Scotts Corners, another pretty 'hood.

I remember going to the Scotts Corners market. Honolulu is actually my hometown - Pound Ridge is so nice, I'm lucky I was able to convince my husband to relocate!
