Marinated Pepper Platter


marinated pepper platter 1- jul16-webA really summery platter of grilled peppers with sun-dried tomatoes and mozzarella pearls. Make a day in advance and chill in the fridge until required. Serve with crusty bread for a simple starter or as part of a summer buffet.

Serves 6 as a starter or part of a buffet.

Ready in 1 hour plus marinating.


  • 6 mixed red, yellow and orange peppers
  • 1 x 280g jar sun-dried tomatoes in oil
  • 2 x 125g tubs mozzarella pearls, drained
  • 2 tbsp capers, drained and rinsed
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tbsp balsamic oil
  • Handful fresh basil leaves, shredded


Instead of mozzarella try another cheese, such as crumbled feta or slices of Brie or Camembert.

  1. Halve all the peppers, leaving the stalks on. Remove and discard the pith and seeds. Place all the peppers, skin-side up, on a grill pan and grill under a moderate heat for 7-8 minutes, until the skins are blistered and charred in places. Leave until cool enough to handle, then peel off as much of the skin from each pepper as you can
  2. Place all the grilled peppers, cut-side up, on a large platter. Drain and roughly chop the sun-dried tomatoes (reserving the oil). Fill each pepper half with some of the tomatoes, along with the mozzarella pearls and capers. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Mix the reserved sun dried tomato oil with the balsamic vinegar and pour over and around the peppers. Cover and leave to marinate in the fridge for a few hours or overnight. Serve garnished with the shredded basil leaves.
