Posts Tagged ‘yellow bell pepper’

I served this salad alongside some crispy sesame-encrusted chicken tenders*, but this recipe would also go nicely with barbecue foods or burgers.

  • 1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 medium bell peppers (1 red, 1 orange, 1 yellow, 1 green), stemmed, seeded and thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 1 celery stalk, halved crosswise and thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 1/4 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves

In a large bowl, whisk together the vinegar, mustard and oil; season with salt and pepper. Add the bell peppers, celery and thyme; toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Makes 4 servings.

Use a red bell pepper, too, sometime?

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/4 cups 1/2-inch cubes peeled red-skinned sweet potato (yam)
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, divided
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, 1/2-inch dice
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels
  • 1 teaspoon dried tarragon

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in sweet potato, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon water. Cover and cook 4 to 5 minutes. Add bell pepper. Cover; cook until sweet potato is tender, 2 to 3 minutes longer. Add corn and tarragon. Saute, uncovered, until corn is tender, 2 minutes. Season with salt, black pepper, and 1 tablespoon lemon juice, if desired.

Makes 4 servings.
