Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for grill
  • 4 bell peppers halved lengthwise, ribs and seeds removed
  • 4 thick slices whole-wheat country bread
  • 1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar
  • 2 ounces feta cheese, crumbled (1/2 cup)
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, torn into pieces
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Heat grill to high; lightly oil grates. Place peppers on grill skin side down; cover. Cook, moving peppers on grill as they char (keep skin side down), until skin is charred all over and peppers are crisp-tender, about 15 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    Immediately transfer peppers to a medium bowl and cover bowl with a towel or a plate; let stand 5 minutes.

  3. Step 3

    Meanwhile, use 1 tablespoon of oil (divide evenly) to brush one side of each slice of bread. Place oil side down on grill and cook until toasted, about 1 minute.

  4. Step 4

    Remove peppers from bowl and, using a paring knife, scrape off charred skin. Cut lengthwise into 1/2 inch strips. In a medium bowl toss pepper strips with remaining tablespoon oil, vinegar, feta, and basil; season with salt and pepper. Spoon mixture evenly onto the grilled side of each slice of bread.
