How to Make Grilled Marinated Peppers for a Salad
Summary: Many vegetables can be marinated, but bell peppers tend to be one of the most popular, because of how marinating makes them tender and adds aromatic flavor.
Cuisine: American
Recipe type: Salad
Serves: 10
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 4 lbs fresh red bell peppers
  • 1 cup olive oil plus extra for grilling
  • 2 cups white vinegar
  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • 2 quartered cloves garlic
  • 1 ½ teaspoon salt
  • Sprigs of fresh parsley, for garnish
  • 3 pint-size canning jars
  1. Rub some olive oil over the outside of the peppers. This helps them to blister quicker. Put them on a rack 5 inches above a hot grill and use tongs to turn them as they blacken and blister.
  2. When they are blackened and blistered all over, put them in a bowl, and cover it.
  3. The steam from the peppers will make the skins loose.
  4. Peel the skins off and cut the peppers in half. Take out the stems and seeds.
  5. Heat the vinegar, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and garlic in a pan until the mixture reaches a boil.
  6. Divide the peppers between sterilized canning jars and pour the hot vinegar and lemon juice mixture over them. Make sure some of the garlic gets into each jar. Leave half an inch free and wipe the jar rims with a damp towel.
  7. Put the rings and sterilized lids on. If you are going to use the marinated peppers within a couple of weeks, refrigerate them now.
  8. If you want them to keep for longer, boil the closed jars for 15 minutes and let them cool.
  9. If any jar lids do not pop as they seal, you will need to use them within a couple of weeks. The ones that did pop will keep for up to a year.
  10. Serve these marinated peppers as they are, garnished with fresh parsley, or on a bed of salad leaves or arugula.
