Recipe: Fried peppers salad with mint

Vegetable recipes with herbs
September 04, 2011



Peperoni SeniseSenise Peppers are small sweet peppers with elongated form, from Basilicata, Italy.
They are used mainly for the traditional recipe peperoni cruschi: they should be dried and then fried.
I will dry my next Senise harvest, but I wanted to taste them, so I fried them fresh and seasoned with aromatic herbs.
