Roasted Pepper and Kalamata Olive Salad (Greek Island of Crete)

This is one of my go to Mediterranean diet recipes when pepper season arrives in Crete.  All the ingredients are fresh from the backyard including, of course the olives and olive oil.  I pick the basil right before I chop it for ultimate freshness.  Sometimes, I will also add whatever other herbs I have on hand (dill or mint are my favorites).  If you are looking for some protein to make this a complete meal you can add poached chicken or feta or parmesan cheese.  This red pepper salad also goes really well with any lamb dish such as my Greek lamb, tomato and onion skewers.  Enjoy!  Koula
