Grilled Peppers with Feta and Basil
Grilled Peppers with Feta and Basil


  • 3 large bell peppers, cut into ½-inch thick strips
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons champagne vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ avocado, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup basil, julienned
  • 2 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
  • flaky sea salt


  1. Preheat an outdoor grill to high heat.
  2. Toss pepper slices, olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder in a large bowl.
  3. Grill peppers until charred and softened, 4 to 6 minutes per side. Transfer peppers to a large serving platter.
  4. Drizzle vinegar and oil all over the peppers. Scatter the avocado slices, basil and feta over top. Finish with a hefty pinch of flaky sea salt. Enjoy immediately or at room temperature.
Mealthy tip:

For a spicy kick, char a jalapeno or serrano pepper on the grill alongside the bell peppers. Chop it up and scatter it over the peppers.

Never would have come up with this combo - but it will be in my regular rotation from now til end of time. Brilliant balance of flavors - sweet, smoky, salty, rich, fresh.... perfection. I also fell in love with feta in greece, and use it every chance I can!

This dish was so easy, but also incredibly delicious. I didn't really start to like peppers until I became an adult, but now I'm obsessed with them. The goat feta and bail really gave it that Mediterranean feel that I absolutely love. I enjoyed this very much!

Added jalapeno peppers on the grill with grilled peppers. I really like the sweet and spicy combo. This is perfect for summer nights.

You had me at feta and basil. Whenever my friends fire up the grill, I make this recipe. It's also great for vegetarians or pairs well with steak.
