Lunch + Skinny salads

Roasted red peppers, chicory, caper berries and salami

Posted On March 14, 2019 By Kathryn

When writing my book Skinny Salads, I wanted the dishes to feel substantial, full of flavour and importantly, not sacrificing the use of my absolute favourite ingredients, which could be labeled as high calorie offenders. This salad, piled with thinly sliced salami is one of my favourite recipes in the book. It is a simple collection of utterly delicious ingredients. Shop bought roasted red peppers can be used in place of roasting your own, and although I have opted for a fennel and pepper salami here, almost any will suffice.

Serves 4

3 romano peppers, quartered and seeds removed

4 sprigs of thyme ,leaves picked

2 sprigs of rosemary, leaves picked

salt and pepper

1 tbsp olive oil

10g parsley, finely chopped

2 heads of chicory

15 caperberries

8 wafer thin slices of salami

salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 200’C. Lay the peppers flat in a deep baking tray, scatter the thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper all over, drizzle with olive oil and roast for 30 minutes.
  2. Transfer the peppers to a large bowl, reserving as much of the roasting oil and juice from the peppers as possible. To make the dressing, stir the agave nectar, sherry vinegar and parsley into the reserved roasting juices and season to taste.
  3. Add the chicory leaves to the roasted peppers and gently mix together. Transfer to a large serving platter, along with the salami and caper berries. Drizzle the dressing all over and serve.
