Simple Salad Idea featuring Mysteriously Sweet Long Peppers

I’ve eyed these up on several occasions.  Ancient Sweet peppers from Sunset brand labeled with the phrase “mysteriously sweet long peppers”.  I picked up a bag with no particular purpose in mind.  They are sweet, but not too sweet and they basically taste like an extra delicious red bell pepper.  They could easily sub for a bell pepper in many recipes, but it seemed they would be best appreciated in their purest form.

I tossed together the following short list of ingredients and was very happy with the results.

  • Mixed Baby Greens
  • Thin Strips of Ancient Sweet Peppers
  • Thin Slices of Red Onion
  • Cooked Penne Pasta
  • Finely Grated Pecorino Romano
  • Dressing–I tossed this lightly with aged balsamic, basil olive oil, and some freshly ground pepper.

Simple, yes…but as a frequent salad eater I like to have some easy combinations to throw together and I am looking forward to having this again, so I thought it was worth sharing.
