sweet chilli and pepper salsa

This may, or may not, be a Jamie Oliver recipe.  It was emailed to me by several people. 

Serves 6

2 red peppers

1/2 red onion, finely chopped

4 medium/large red chillies, seeded and finely chopped

1/2 clove garlic, finely chopped

8 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

1 handful parsley, finely chopped

1 handful basil, finely chopped

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


Grill the peppers whole, turning at intervals, until the skin is blackened.

Place in a bowl while still hot and cover with plastic wrap. Leave them to steam (this makes it easier to remove the skin from the peppers).

Skin, remove seeds and finely chop the peppers. Then add the remaining ingredients and mix well.

Taste for seasoning. Leave for 1 hour to let the flavours develop.

Check for seasoning before serving.

Thinly sliced focaccia tastes great with this dip. It is perfect for drinks and parties.
