Author Notes

I've been eating blistered Shisito peppers with a dash of salt right out of the pan all summer long. Now I decided to make a salad from these same blistered peppers but cool them off and add a generous amount of minced cilantro,Sweety Pop peppers and a light dressing. I eat this as a salad and as condiment on sliced flank steak, chicken and even on farro. —dymnyno
