Recipe for Roasted Peppers With Mozzarella And Caramelized Garlic


4 medium yellow and red bell peppers
2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
18 garlic cloves, sliced
1/4 cup plus 1-1/2 teaspoons
1 balsamic vinegar
2 sprigs of fresh thyme or
1/4 teaspoon dried
6 oz fresh mozzarella cheese,
1 sliced as thin as possible
1/4 cup coarsely chopped flat-leaf
1 parsley or fresh basil
1 freshly ground black pepper


1. Roast the bell peppers directly over a gas flame or under the broiler as close to the heat as possible, turning, until charred all over, about 5 minutes. Enclose the peppers in a paper bag and set aside for 10 minutes to steam. With a small knife, scrape off the blackened skin; remove the cores, seeds and ribs. Rinse under running water. Slice the peppers lengthwise into 1-inch strips. (The recipe can be prepared to this point up to 3 days ahead; cover and refrigerate.) 2. In a small nonreactive skillet, combine the olive oil and garlic. Cover and cook over very low heat until the garlic is very tender, 7 to 10 minutes. Uncover the pan, increase the heat to moderate and cook until browned, about 2 minutes. Stir in the vinegar and thyme and cook for 1 minute. 3. To assemble, decoratively arrange the pepper strips and mozzarella slices on 6 small plates. Spoon the caramelized garlic dressing over the peppers and cheese and sprinkle the parsley and black pepper on top. Serve at room temperature. (The salad can be assembled up to 2 hours before serving.)
