Marinated Red Peppers with Garlic and Marjoram


  • 8 red bell peppers

  • 2 garlic cloves, very thinly sliced

  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons (or more) sherry vinegar or red wine vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons chopped marjoram, divided

  • Kosher salt


  1. Heat broiler. Place bell peppers on a rimmed baking sheet. Broil, turning occasionally, until skins are blackened and blistered all over, 14–17 minutes. Transfer peppers to a large bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and sweat 15 minutes.

  2. Remove skins and seeds from peppers; discard. Tear peppers into about 2"-wide strips. Toss in a clean large bowl with garlic, oil, vinegar, and 1 Tbsp. marjoram; season with salt. Let sit at least 20 minutes and up to 4 hours.

  3. Just before serving, taste peppers and season with more vinegar and/or salt if needed. Scatter remaining 1 Tbsp. marjoram over top.
