Smoked Green Pepper Salad: Moroccan Recipe


Moroccan style smoked green pepper salad compliments many of my main dishes. It's easy to make and has a slightly hot taste to it, that goes well with meats, rice and stews.

2 green peppers
1 small onion
4 tomatoes
1 tbsp chopped parsley
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp vinegar
salt, pepper to taste

Wash the green peppers and grill them whole, in the oven or over a gas stove until they are charred on both sides. Put them in a plastic bag, close it and leave it for a while. Then take them out, peel off the charred skin (I scrape it off with a knife), and chop the green pepper in half. Take out the seeds etc. and dice your green pepper or chop it into 1 inch pieces, as you prefer. Then dice your onion and tomatoes, and add that in with the chopped parsley, oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Mix it up well and refrigerate it if you like cold salad. Goes as a perfect side dish with chicken sweet potato marqa (Moroccan stew), beans or just about any main dish.
