This is one of my backlog post.
Sometimes I get very bored with the availability of food around the office, so I packed myself lunch. This was one of them...
A very simple salad of lettuce leaves (from Sime), roasted peppers and cubed pears, served with olive oil and balsamic vinegar dressing. Strangely enough the balsamic vinegar brought out the sweetness of the pear. Lovely.
The roasted peppers were made by roasting them either in an open fire or in the oven until blackened. Place them in a bowl then cover with cling wrap or inside a plastic bag and tie it up. The steam will loosen the skin where it can be easily removed after doing so for 5 minutes or so. Be careful though, they can still be very hot. Once done, cut them up and remove the seeds. Next drizzle olive oil all over and sprinkle on some sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper.
Usually I'll make a batch and keep them in the fridge in a sterile bottle. I've used them in salads and sandwiches (really yummy). Really handy and jiffy for a quick snack or meal.
