Ingredients

  • 3 capsicum (red, yellow and orange)
  • 8 kalamata olives, pitted, halved
  • 1 tablespoon capers, drained
  • 1 tablespoon thyme leaves
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar

Method Notes

  • Step 1  Preheat a grill on high heat. Cut capsicums into quarters. Remove seeds. Arrange capsicum, in a single layer, skin side up, on grill tray. Grill for 10 minutes or until skin is black and blistered.
  • Step 2  Transfer hot capsicum to a plastic bag and twist top to seal. Stand for 10 minutes. Peel and discard skin. Cut flesh into long, thick strips. Place in a bowl (see tip).
  • Step 3  Add olives, capers, thyme, oil, vinegar and salt and pepper to capsicum. Stir gently to combine. Stand for at least 1 hour for flavours to develop. Serve.
