Marinated Red Peppers with Garlic and Marjoram

Do you ever just want a side dish that will add spice to your meals. Bell peppers especially red always make a great choose not only because of their great flavor but color too! Pick up some fresh peppers at the local farmers market or your local grocery store and try this recipe out:


8 servings

8 red bell peppers

2 garlic cloves, very thinly sliced

¼ cup olive oil

2 tablespoons (or more) sherry vinegar or red wine vinegar

2 tablespoons chopped marjoram,

divided Kosher salt


Step 1

Heat broiler. Place bell peppers on a rimmed baking sheet. Broil, turning occasionally, until skins are blackened and blistered all over, 14–17 minutes. Transfer peppers to a large bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and sweat 15 minutes.

Step 2

Remove skins and seeds from peppers; discard. Tear peppers into about 2″-wide strips. Toss in a clean large bowl with garlic, oil, vinegar, and 1 Tbsp. marjoram; season with salt. Let sit at least 20 minutes and up to 4 hours.

Step 3

Just before serving, taste peppers and season with more vinegar and/or salt if needed. Scatter remaining 1 Tbsp. marjoram over top.
