Grilled peppers

Grilled peppers are a really delicious side dish and loved by all. They can be prepared on both a non-stick and cast iron plate, on the embers of the fireplace in winter and on the barbecue in summer as I did. In my opinion they are the most exquisite side dish ever, sweet with that slight smoked flavor and they go very well with any dish from meat to fish. They are also excellent for preparing cold pasta, perhaps adding tuna. As for the dressing, oil, salt, garlic and parsley are simply used, while in this recipe I have added sun-dried tomatoes prepared by me, olives and Greek basil.
