- 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 4 medium red bell peppers, diced small
- 1 medium red onion, diced small
- Coarse salt and ground pepper
- 1/2 cup red-wine vinegar
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vinegar
In a medium saucepan, heat olive oil over medium-high. Add bell peppers and onion; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables begin to soften, about 6 minutes.
