Try These Padrón Peppers With Roasted Tomatoes

TRISH DESEINE puts together a colourful salad for a tasty SUMMER LUNCH


Padrón peppers & tomatoes roasted with lemons, lime, garlic & olives

If you are lucky enough to get your hands on little Padrón peppers, they are delicious in this recipe, roasted next to sweet cherry tomatoes. But you can use any small peppers, and/or add chilis for a bit of fire. Serve as an accompaniment to grilled fish or lamb, or top with feta, ricotta, plain mozzarella or buffalo.
