A simple and delicious way to use bell peppers. Marinate them in balsamic and spices and serve on your favorite salad, sandwich or burger. 


  • 45 bell peppers, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp honey or maple
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh basil, chopped


  1. Slice the peppers and place them in a bowl and toss with the salt. Let them sit for about 10 minutes.
  2. Add the balsamic, olive oil, lemon juice, honey and garlic to a jar with a lid and shake until everything is thoroughly combined.
  3. Pour the marinade over the pepper mixture and let sit at room temperature for 45 minutes.
  4. Add the chopped basil and then let it set for another 15 minutes and then strain the peppers and reserve the liquid.
  5. You can use the reserved liquid as a salad dressing (optional).
  6. Serve the peppers on top of your favorite salad or as a garnish to spice up an entrée.


  • These peppers were pretty small so if you have really large ones I would only do two bell peppers.
