Yes, pepperoncini is awesome in a salad, but last night I made one with other ingredients that was decently: red lettuce, thinly sliced sweet onion, marinated artichoke hearts, garbanzos, and thin sliced of orange bell pepper. There wasn’t a single Scoville in there unless it was from the scant teaspoon of Maille Dijon in the EVOO and white wine vinegar dressing. Maldon salt, the unsung hero of many salads. Pepperoncini would have made it even better.^^
....but a salad is not a salad, absent the pepperoncini's. Just a bowl of lettuce, spinach leaves, cut up tomato's and onion! Ya just gotta have the peppers.
Howard, it sounds as if you are a bell pepper guy. No more pepperoncini!
I see. Which one is your favorite hot sauce?
