1/4 cup  halved and pitted oil-cured black olives
1/4 cup  rinsed and chopped oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
1 tablespoon  extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon  balsamic vinegar
1/8 teaspoon  salt
1. Grill peppers on medium-high, turning once, until soft and charred in spots, about 5 minutes per side. When cool enough to handle, chop the peppers; toss with olives, sun-dried tomatoes, oil, vinegar and salt in a large bowl. Makes about 4 servings
Roasted broccoli and tomatoes 
12 ounces  broccoli crowns, trimmed and cut into bite-size florets (about 4 cups)

1 teaspoon  dried oregano
2 teaspoons  capers, rinsed (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
2. Toss broccoli, tomatoes, oil, garlic and salt in a large bowl until evenly coated. Spread in an even layer on a baking sheet. Bake until the broccoli begins to brown, 10 to 13 minutes.
