Pepper & Pomegranate Salad
A small handful of sunflower seeds
5 red peppers, halved and deseeded
5 yellow peppers, halved and deseeded
200 g feta cheese, cubed
1 cup pomegranate seeds
A small handful of a selection of sprouts (Chickpea, Mung Bean, etc.)
3 spring onions, sliced
NoMU Extra Virgin Olive Oil
NoMU One for All Grinder
Juice of 1 freshly squeezed lemon
Start off by lightly toasting the sunflower seeds in a dry frying pan over a medium heat, once golden remove from the pan and set aside to cool.
Place the peppers skin side down on the braai grid over the hot coals. Turn the peppers until they are cooked and the skin has been nicely charred. Remove the peppers from the grid, immediately place into a plastic Ziploc bag and leave for about 8 minutes to sweat. Remove the peppers from the bag and peel the charred skin off.
Slice or tear the peppers into strips and place them into a large salad bowl, or arrange onto a platter. Top with cubes of feta, and garnish with pomegranate seeds, sprouts and spring onions. Sprinkle with the toasted sunflower seeds and finish with a drizzle of olive oil and lemon juice.
Season to taste with a grinding of NoMU One for All just before serving.
