 Ingredients List

  • 1 tb Mayonnaise
  • 1 ts Anchovy paste OR
  • 1 Anchovy fillet--rinsed,
  • Dried & mashed
  • 1 ts Red wine vinegar
  • 1 c Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 md Red onion, minced
  • 3 tb Chopped parsley
  • 3 tb Capers--rinsed, dried &
  • Finely chopped
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 6 md Green bell peppers
  • (about 2-1/2 lbs.)
  • 6 md Red bell peppers
  • (about 2-1/2 lbs.)
  • 1/2 c Fresh peas OR
  • 1/2 c Thawed frozen peas
  • 1 lb Fresh mozzarella cheese,
  • Cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 6 md Ripe tomatoes
  • (about 3 lbs), peeled and

1. In a medium bowl, combine the mayonnaise, anchovy paste and vinegar.
Slowly pour in the olive oil in a steady stream, stirring constantly. Stir
in the onion, parsley, capers and salt. (The sauce can be prepared up to 4
days ahead. Cover and refrigerate.) 2. Preheat the broiler. On a baking
sheet, broil the peppers, 6 at a time, as close to the heat as possible,
turning occasionally, until charred all over, about 25 minutes per batch.
Immediately transfer the peppers to brown paper bags, seal and set aside to
steam for about 20 minutes. Peel and core the peppers, then cut them in
half and remove the seeds and ribs. Slice lengthwise into 1-1/2-inch
strips. 3. If using fresh peas, blanch them in boiling salted water for 5
minutes. Drain, refresh under cold running water, drain again and set
aside. Arrange alternating red and green pepper strips around the edge of
a large serving platter. Layer alternate slices of cheese and tomato down
the center and sprinkle the peas on top. Drizzle the dressing over the
salad and serve. (The salad can be completely assembled 3 to 4 hours ahead
before serving and kept covered at room temperature.)
