- 2 red bell peppers
- 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
- 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
- 8 basil leaves
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
Char peppers over an open flame (on the stove or a grill) until skin is blistered and charred. Transfer to a large bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap; let peppers steam and cool slightly.
Once peppers are cool enough to touch, rub skin off using a clean paper towel. Remove stems and seeds. Slice peppers lengthwise into 1/4-inch-wide strips.
Place peppers in a large bowl along with garlic, rosemary, basil, and oil; season with salt and pepper.
