Green Bean-and-Roasted Red Pepper Salad

Private chef Michael Emanuel's late-harvest salad gets its surprisingly meaty richness from the sliced red bell peppers he roasts in a clay oven; a broiler also works well.

  • 5 red bell peppers
  • 3 medium shallots, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
  • Salt
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds green beans
  • 1 pound cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 tablespoons chopped mint
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 1/2 cup roasted almonds, chopped

How to make this recipe

  1. Preheat the broiler. Roast the peppers under the broiler or over a gas flame, turning a few times, until charred all over; transfer to a work surface and let cool. Discard the skin, stems and seeds and cut the peppers into 2-by-1-inch strips.

  2. In a small bowl, combine the shallots with the garlic, red wine and sherry vinegars and a large pinch of salt. Let stand for 10 minutes. Stir in the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

  3. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the beans and cook until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Drain and spread out on a large baking sheet. Let cool to room temperature.

  4. In a large bowl, combine the peppers with the beans, tomatoes, mint and parsley. Add the shallot dressing and toss well. Sprinkle with the almonds and serve.
