Roasted Red Peppers and Cherry Tomatoes with Goat Cheese

Tomato season is finally here--and if that excites you as much as it does me, then you'll be happy to add a simple, but superbly fresh and delicious recipe to your Summer eats rotation.  Vibrant, roasted red peppers provide the perfect canvas for ripe cherry tomatoes, sweet basil, tangy goat cheese and other savory flavorings.

The tastes of Summer are on full display in this simple, yet scrumptious, salad.

Happy Eating!

Roasted Red Peppers and Cherry Tomatoes with Goat Cheese
(Recipe adapted from Bon Appetit)
  • 4 red bell peppers, halved, seeds and ribs removed
  • 6 oil-packed anchovy fillets, finely chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup basil leaves, divided
  • Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons plus ⅓ cup olive oil
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Preheat oven to 375°. Place bell peppers, skin side down, in a shallow baking dish and top with anchovies and garlic. Tear ¼ cup basil leaves over top, season with kosher salt and black pepper, and drizzle with 2 Tbsp. oil. Bake until peppers are tender but still hold their shape and are slightly charred around edges, 35–45 minutes. Let cool.

  • Meanwhile, blend remaining ¾ cup basil and remaining ⅓ cup oil in a blender until smooth; season basil oil with kosher salt and black pepper. 

  • Arrange bell peppers on a platter. Top with tomatoes, goat cheese, and more basil, then drizzle with basil oil and season with sea salt and black pepper.
