Lettuce with Pickled Peppers

A brilliant salad combination for wrapping in tortilla or flabread with some beans, chicken or lamb... Some natural yoghurt, and a few sprigs of fresh herbs and you'll be in 'wrap-heaven'.


  • Letttuce
  • 2 Red Peppers
  • Cucumber
  • Red Onion
  • Cider Vinegar

Wash the Lettuce but keep the leaves whole…  Slice some Red Onion and Cucumber too

Slice the Peppers into thin strips

Heat a pan with a little Olive Oil and when really hot, add the sliced Peppers

Don’t stir them too much as they’re cooking – you want them to get a little chargrilled…

Take them off the heat after 5 or 10 mins, when they’re starting to smoke a bit

Immediately put the Peppers into a bowl and add 2 tbsp of Cider Vinegar

Leave them to cool in the Vinegar until you’re ready to eat – just a spoonful of the Peppers will be like a delicious Salsa on the Lettuce, with the cooling Cucumber and the tangy Red Onion…

Serve with mezze, or on the side with a curry

Flatbread with some beans would be delicious too
