You might be asking why these are the ‘perfect’ summer appetizer. Two reasons:
1- They involve no heating the house. You don’t need an oven, stove, toaster…no heat source at all.
2- They use up bell peppers. If you garden like I do, you’ve got them coming out your ears. If you don’t garden, this is the time of year you can find them on sale and at their cheapest, which makes them economical.
They also satisfy a triad of summer cravings I have…salt (must be all the sweating in the heat), bright fresh lemon, and cold stuff. This one appetizer meets all three.
And with less than 15 minutes to make these babies, you just might find yourself serving them up all season long.
