Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat grill to high (450 degrees F to 550 degrees F). Coat peppers with cooking spray. Place whole peppers on grates; grill, covered, until skin is blackened on all sides, about 25 minutes total. Remove from grill, and place in a large bowl; cover with plastic wrap. Let stand 10 minutes.

  • Remove peppers from bowl, and using a knife or your fingers, peel off blackened skin; discard skins and stems. Cut peeled peppers into 2-inch-wide strips and arrange on a platter. Drizzle with oil, vinegar and honey and sprinkle with thyme, garlic, and salt.


Alternative Step 1: Preheat broiler to high with rack 8 inches from heat. Place peppers on a rimmed baking sheet. Broil until all sides are blackened, 6 to 8 minutes per side. Remove from oven, and place in a large bowl. Cover with plastic wrap, and let stand 10 minutes.
