Procedure

Gather Ingredients. Preheat Broiler to "Hi"

To roast the Peppers: Cut the peppers in half. Use your hands to pull out the seeds and ribs. Place the peppers cut-side-down on a large baking sheet.  Roast the peppers on the top rack of your oven, right under your broiler, for about 10-15 minutes. 
When the peppers are well-charred, remove from the oven. Transfer the peppers to an airtight container and cover. Let steam for 5 minutes. This will help loosen the skins to make them easier to peel. 
After 5 minutes, peel off the pepper skins. Thinly slice the peppers.

To make the salad: Combine the sliced peppers with the parsley, balsamic, salt, and pepper. 

Serve and enjoy!

Chef's Tip: Choose a colorful assortment of peppers.  This salad does best sticking with sweet peppers, though, so go easy on the spicy chilies.
