Roasted bell peppers combine with toasted walnuts, capers, walnut oil and fresh oregano for a delicious, nutritious salad. For a change of pace, add crumbled goat cheese or feta at serving time.
Bell peppers are high in antioxidants and walnuts are a good source of heart-healthy Omega-3 fatty acids, so this is dish you can feel good about offering to family and friends for both taste and nutrients.
You can make this salad a day ahead, then cover and refrigerate it; for the best flavor, bring it back to room temperature before serving.
