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.
