1 3/4 tsp capers   5 g
1/2 tbsp pine nuts [optional]   4 g
6 black olives   2 1/2 tbsp

Method

  1. Cut the peppers into quarters lengthwise, remove the seeds and stalks. Cook, skin side down, over a hot grill or under a broiler about 5 min, until the skin chars. Turn them over and cook an additional 2-3 min. Transfer them to a bowl and let cool down a few minutes. Peel the peppers, cut them into strips lengthwise, then arrange them on a serving dish.
  2. Slice the tomatoes and arrange them on the serving dish with the peppers. Drain the sun-dried tomatoes and chop them coarsely. Add the sun-dried tomatoes, capers, pine nuts (optional), and olives on top of the peppers and tomatoes.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, and Parsley and Garlic Base. Chop the chives and add them to the dressing. Season with salt and pepper. Whisk well, then pour the dressing over the salad and serve.

Remarks

This salad may be prepared and dressed 1-2 hours before serving.
