The method for making these grilled bell peppers is simple, straightforward and pretty much fail-proof. The dressing turns these easy grilled peppers into a delightful appetizer or tasty addition to a simple sandwich, but feel free to skip dressing them if you need plain grilled peppers for another recipe. Alternatively, you can also skip the grill and roast the peppers instead.

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.
