Grilled Peppers with Tzatziki Sauce
Recipe Type: Appetizer
Serves: 4 servings
Mini peppers packed with sweet flavor are skewered, grilled and served with a minty tzatziki sauce for cool as a cucumber flavor.
For the minty tzatsiki:
  • ¼ cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
  • 1 mini cucumber, finely grated and squeezed of all liquid (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 1½ teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove, finely minced
  • ⅛ teaspoon sea salt
For the mini peppers:
  • 16 mini peppers
  • ½ teaspoon olive oil
  • A pinch of sea salt and a few grinds of pepper
  1. Preheat your grill to medium high. Lay 8 wooden skewers on a plate with a little water.
  2. Combine all the minty tzatsiki ingredients together in a medium sized bowl and mix well.
  3. Toss the peppers with the olive oil, sea salt and pepper then slid the peppers onto the skewers, using 2 skewers for each row of peppers (so they don't twirl around when you flip them).
  4. Grill the peppers for 5 minutes, or until they're soft and have nice grill marks on them, turning once.
  5. Serve the grilled peppers right away with the minty tzatziki on the side. Note: Don't worry about the seeds when you eat them. Just pick the pepper up by the stem and eat the whole thing (minus the stem).
