  1. 20 small sweet peppers, such as baby bell peppers
  2. 1 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  3. 1 garlic clove, minced
  4. Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  5. 10 kalamata olives, thinly sliced
  6. 2 small jalapeños, very thinly sliced crosswise
  7. Lavender-Rose Honey for drizzling
  1. Light a grill. Grill the peppers over moderately high heat, turning, until lightly charred and crisp-tender, 3 minutes. Peel off any charred parts and halve the peppers lengthwise. Cut out the cores and scrape the seeds. Arrange the peppers cut sides up on plates.
  2. In a bowl, mix the yogurt with the garlic; season with salt and black pepper. Fill each pepper half with the yogurt. Scatter the olives and jalapeños on top. Drizzle each plate with 2 teaspoons of the honey and serve.
