12 servings (serving size: about 3 tablespoons relish and 2 pita wedges)

This zesty condiment can spark up a crudité platter and can be made up to three days in advance. Look for harissa, a North African paste made of chiles, garlic, and spices, in international markets. This relish can easily be doubled; however, you will probably have to roast the peppers in two batches.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler.

Step 2

Cut bell peppers in half lengthwise; discard seeds and membranes. Place pepper halves, skin sides up, on a foil-lined baking sheet; flatten with hand. Broil 15 minutes or until blackened. Place in a zip-top plastic bag; seal. Let stand 15 minutes. Peel and cut into 1/2-inch pieces; place in a large bowl.

Step 3

Heat a medium, heavy skillet over high heat. Add tomato; cook 8 minutes or until thick, stirring constantly. Add tomato to bell pepper in bowl. Stir in parsley and next 9 ingredients (through garlic). Serve with pita wedges.
