Grilled peppers and onion are the perfect summer side dish! Fire up the grill for your main dish, and cook these on the side to make it a meal.


  • 3 multi-colored bell peppers
  • 1 medium red onion
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Preheat a grill to medium-high heat (375 to 450 degrees). If using the grill basket, place it on the grill while preheating. Or, fold a large piece of aluminum foil in half and prick several holes in it with a fork, then fold up a 1-inch rim around the edge to make a makeshift tray.
  2. Cut the peppers into 1 1/2-inch wide strips. Cut the onion into wide strips and separate the layers with your fingers. Place them in a bowl and mix with the olive oil and kosher salt.
  3. Grill in the grill basket or on the foil tray for 15 to 20 minutes until tender, turning the vegetables a few times to ensure even cooking.
