Grilled Pimientos or Red Pepper Salad

Pimientos or red peppers taste divine when grilled and served up in a salad . This is a very simple recipe with delicious results.The origins of this recipe are from Spain .
6 Red Peppers.
6 -8 Tablespoons minced Parsley.
6 Cloves Garlic Minced.
2 Tablespoons Sherry Vinegar ( use any white one )
1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Juice of the peppers **
Just mix up the ingredients listed under ' Dressing ' to make the dressing
Coat the peppers with oil and bake standing in a dish at 200C for about 20 minutes till the skin shrivels and slightly chars.
Cool peppers , ** make a gash at the bottom of each and collect the liquid that will pour out . This is important as this liquid is used in the dressing and imparts a brilliant flavor.
Next remove the skin totally , cut open the peppers , discard all seeds and cut the flesh into strips.
Arrange the peppers in a dish , add the dressing and cover with cling till you are ready to serve. Always serve at room temperature .
I added some baked mushrooms and whole cloves of baked garlic too. You can avoid this step if you don't have mushrooms handy though the mushrooms really tasted great here.If you are using mushrooms , slice them thick , add in some whole cloves of garlic , drizzle some Olive oil , and bake them in a separate dish for 5-7  minutes while the peppers are baking .
