Total Time 23 minutes
Servings 4


  • 2 pounds sweet baby bell peppers * small, green, red, orange, purple, and/or yellow If you can't find baby bell peppers use large peppers with stem end cut off and seeds removed.
  • 3 cloves  garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons good-quality aged balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper

  • Core, seed, and rinse peppers. Cut each pepper into fourths. In a large re-sealable plastic bag, place sweet pepper chunks.
  • In a small bowl, combine garlic, salt, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and pepper; mix well; pour over pepper chunks. Reseal bag and shake to distribute sauce.

  • Remove peppers from sauce. Place peppers, smooth-side down, on hot grill. Cook 6 to 8 minutes (turning occasionally) or until lightly charred on both sides.
  • Remove peppers from grill; either leave in chunks or slice into 1/2-inch-wide strips.
  • Arrange chunks or strips on a platter, alternating colors. Sprinkle with crumbled feta cheese.
