Bell Pepper Slaw
This is great for picnics and potlucks and buffets, since sitting around is something it does very well. The fennel is optional since it’s such a strong flavor, use as you see fit.
- 3 bell peppers red, green, and yellow or orange is best mix
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 tablespoon aged sherry vinegar
- 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- ¼ teaspoons salt
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly and coarsely ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon fennel seeds optional
- 4 ounces feta optional
Remove and discard the stems and seeds from the peppers. Cut them in skinny strips—the skinnier the better, but even is also good. Set them aside.
Peel and mince the garlic. Put it in a large salad bowl with the vinegar, oil, salt, and pepper.
Add the peppers and toss to coat. Add more salt and/or pepper to taste.
If using the fennel seeds, crush them in a mortar and pestle (or using the bottom of a small frying pan) and sprinkle them on the salad.
If using the feta, cut into small chunks and scatter on top.
