“To make a good salad is to be a brilliant diplomat -
the problem is entirely the same in both cases.
To know how much oil to mix in with one's vinegar.”

Braised Endive and Red Pepper Salad

2 red bell peppers
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
4 heads Belgian endive (about 1 pound),
trimmed and cut into 1-inch-pieces
1 tablespoon fresh thyme or
1 teaspoon dried, crumbled
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 scallions, trimmed and cut
into 1-inch pieces
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons sherry vinegar,
or 1 1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

To prepare peppers, place them about 2 inches below preheated broiler.
Broil peppers, turning them as their sides become scorched until their skin
has blistered all over. Transfer peppers to bowl and cover it with plastic
wrap, or put them in paper bag and fold it shut. The trapped steam will
make the peppers limp and loosen their skins - about 15 minutes. With a paring knife peel off peppers' skins. Remove stems, ribs and seeds from peppers working over a bowl to catch the juices. Strain pepper juices into another bowl and set it aside. Slice peppers lengthwise into 1/2-inch-wide,
2-inch-long strips and add them to the juices.
Heat oil in large heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat. Add endive
and thyme and cook mixture stirring constantly until endive begins to wilt - about 5 minutes. Stir in lemon juice, salt, scallions and some pepper, then cook mixture 3 minutes more, stirring frequently. Add peppers and their juices and the vinegar; cook 2 minutes. Scrape contents of skillet into
bowl and refrigerate until cool. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
