Insalata di melanzane e peperoni arrostiti

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
\N \N Vegetable oil
1½ pounds Eggplants; cut lengthwise
1 large Red bell pepper
1 large Yellow bell pepper
1 large Onion; unpeeled and halved
1 \N Clove garlic; finely chopped
1 tablespoon Fresh Italian parsley; chopped
1 tablespoon Capers; drained
2 tablespoons Olive oil
1 tablespoon Balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon Green olives; pitted and sliced

Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F. Rub two baking sheets with vegetable oil. Place the eggplant halves, whole peppers, and onion halves on the baking sheets and roast in the preheated oven until the vegetables are tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Leave the eggplants and onion in one position throughout the cooking, but turn the peppers to expose oil all sides so that they cook evenly .

Remove from the oven. When the peppers are cool enough to handle, peel off the skills using your fingertips, cut the peppers in half lengthwise, and remove and discard the stems, ribs, and seeds. Cut the peppers into long strips about 1½ inches wide. If the eggplants have excessive seeds, remove them as well, along with the stems and navels. Leave their skins on, however, and cut the eggplants into strips approximately the same size as the pepper strips. Peel the onion halves and cut them into ½-inch dice.

In an attractive serving bowl, combine the cut vegetables. Add the garlic, parsley, capers, olive oil, vinegar, and olives and toss well. Serve warm, at room temperature, or chilled.
