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°F to 550°F). Coat peppers with cooking spray. Place the whole peppers on the grates; grill, covered and turning frequently, until the skin is blackened on all sides, about 25 minutes. Remove from grill and place in a large bowl; cover with plastic wrap. Let stand for 10 minutes.

  • Remove the peppers from the bowl and, using a knife or your fingers, peel off the blackened skin; discard skins and stems. Cut the 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 the heat source. 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 for 10 minutes.
