This classic Tunisian salad is a wonderful blend of smoky grilled vegetables. Garnish with capers and extra-virgin olive oil.
- 12 ounces fresh poblano chilies
- 1 3/4 pounds green bell peppers
- 1/2 pound plum tomatoes
- 2 garlic cloves, unpeeled
- 2 teaspoons tabil (see recipe)
- 3/4 teaspoon salt, plus more if needed
- Juice from 1/2 lemon
- 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Ground pepper
- 1 tablespoon small capers, drained
Char the chilies and bell peppers over a gas flame until blackened on all sides. Enclose the chilies and peppers in a plastic bag. Cool slightly. Stem, seed and peel the skins. Transfer the chilies and bell peppers to a food processor. Using on/off turns, process until finely chopped. Transfer the pepper mixture to a large bowl. Set aside.
Preheat the broiler. Place the tomatoes and garlic on a small baking sheet. Broil until the tomatoes soften, about 3 minutes. Peel and crush the garlic; transfer to the processor. Stem, peel and seed the tomatoes. Add to
the processor. Pulse to puree.
Stir the tomato mixture, tabil, salt and lemon juice into the pepper mixture in the large bowl. Gradually mix in the olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Spoon the mixture into a shallow dish. Sprinkle the capers over. Serve at room temperature.
