Roasted Pepper and Olive Salad

When I was practicing roasting peppers, I tossed some on-hand ingredients together and came up with this recipe. It got rave reviews at our church potluck.

    10 servings


  • 1 medium sweet red pepper
  • 1 medium sweet yellow pepper
  • 1 poblano pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups torn fresh spinach
  • 1 large red onion, halved and sliced
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 large tomato, cut into wedges
  • 1 celery rib, thinly sliced
  • 1 can (3.8 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained
  • 3/4 cup pimiento-stuffed olives, halved
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/3 to 2/3 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/3 cup minced fresh parsley


  • Halve peppers and remove seeds. Rub with oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Broil 4 in. from the heat until skins blister, about 4 minutes. Immediately place peppers in a bowl; cover and let stand for 15-20 minutes. Peel off and discard charred skin. Coarsely chop peppers.
  • In a large bowl, combine the peppers, spinach, onion, mushrooms, tomato, celery and olives. In a small bowl, combine the vinegar, oil and honey. Pour over vegetables and toss to coat. Sprinkle with blue cheese and parsley; gently toss to coat. Serve with a slotted spoon.
Editor's Note
Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
