Roasted Vinegared Peppers and Capers

In the markets of Sicily, you can conveniently buy roasted peppers right off the grill. Back in the USA, we must roast them ourselves. They make a great addition to an antipasti spread. as a topping for bruschetta or to round out a sandwich. Try them with sword fish or tuna. Make these the next time you fire up the grill.
