I also had some leftover roasted bell peppers from last week that I placed under olive oil and decided to put them together with mozzarella and tomatoes.

Cooking tips and step-by-step instructions on how to prepare this salad

This recipe will come together in a flash. If you do not have roast red peppers, you can purchase or make them yourself.

If you choose to roast red peppers at home, here are a few instructions to do so:

  • Preheat the broiler.
  • Place red and yellow fresh peppers on a baking sheet, put them under the broiler, and turn as they roast so it is even on all sides.
  • Once done, place the roasted peppers in a small bowl, seal them tight with foil, and let them steam for 10-15 minutes. Remove from the bowl and pull off the skin.
  • The best way to remove the skin that will not come off is to use the back of a knife. Remove the seeds, ribs, and stems from the peppers.

As you can see, it is super easy to do.

I didn’t want your usual Caprese salad, so I used fresh thyme and lots of cracked pepper.

Due to the richness and savory taste of the roasted bell peppers, I decided to forgo the balsamic vinegar.

Red pepper is roasted here, however the yellow pepper is also delicious with this salad.

Shaved red onions add a touch of tanginess to this tomato caprese salad. Just one tiny sliver keeps a well-rounded balance.

It was the perfect snack that made up a great, fun dinner.
