A fun, fresh and easy play off of the Turkish salad Ezme. It’s a perfect summer side. Cut it finely or leave in larger chunks.
Mix the together the bell peppers, tomato, hot pepper if using, along with green onion & parsley.
In a small bowl, mix the Sweet Chili sauce, tomato paste, red wine vinegar, sugar and salt and pepper to taste. Pour over the vegetables and mix.
May be served immediately, but best if it has some time to sit, an hour or so. Keeps well for several days.
Salad may be chopped finely as a condiment, or in small or bite-sized pieces depending on your preference.
