Method

  1. On the barbecue, under the grill or over a flame, blacken the peppers all over, then pop into a bowl and cover with cling film. Once cool, peel, deseed and cut into strips, keeping any juices.
  2. Cook the beans in boiling salted water until crunchy but not squeaky, then drain and drop straight into iced water. To serve, toss everything together, adding the shredded basil at the last minute, and scattering with the small basil leaves to finish.

Easy and tasty salad!

This was lovely and very summery. I made a couple of changes, I didn't peel the peppers just sliced and popped them in the oven for 10 mins to soften. I used green olives (stuffed with anchovies) as that is what I had in the fridge. Lastly, I left out the capers as I don't like them. Served it all slightly warm (a bit of residual heat from the cooked beans and peppers). Will make again.

This is a really easy and tasty salad. I also used roasted peppers from a jar and served with roasted veg lasagne and the garlic and basil ciabbata from this site. Will definitely make the salad again soon - delicious!

Used prepared peppers but no capers, added a dash of soya sauce to the dressing. Absolutely delicious and healthy too!

A great side, so tasty. I used jarred peppers for speed and didn't use the capers.

A bit of a fiddle to prepare but worth it for the lovely combination of flavours.
