Roasted red pepper salad (Italian recipe):

Red pepper 5large
Garlic 2cloves
Onion 1
Small bunch fresh parsley
Virgin olive oil 5tbsp
Cut the peppers in half and discard seeds, membranes and stalks. Place under a grill, skin side up, until they become blackened.
Remove from grill, put into a plastic bag and leave to cool-this will make them easier to peel later.
Take pepper out of the bag and peel off the blackened skin. Cut peppers into strips, and then lay them, overlapping, on a flat plate.
About 2hours ahead, finely chop the garlic, onion and parsley, discarding stalks. Scatter peppers with garlic and parsley, and then drizzle with olive oil and seasoning. Leave to stand for an hour or more to allow flavour to develop before serving.
