12 Ingredients

  • 1 red capsicum, quartered

  • 4 small pita bread rounds

  • 2 tbsp sun-dried tomato pesto

  • 250g mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced (see tip)

  • 100g shaved salami, roughly torn

  • 1/2 cup pitted kalamata olives

  • 80g mixed salad leaves

  • Dressing

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

  • 1/4 tsp caster sugar

  • 1 small garlic clove, crushed

  • Select all ingredients

4 Method Steps

  • Make dressing: Combine ingredients in a screw-top jar. Secure lid. Shake to combine. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Preheat grill on high. Place capsicum, skin side up, under grill. Grill for 2 to 3 minutes or until skin blackens and blisters. Place in a plastic bag or a bowl covered with plastic wrap. Stand for 5 minutes. Peel and discard capsicum skin. Cut capsicum into long thin strips.

  • Spread pesto over pita rounds. Top with half the mozzarella. Grill for 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese has melted.

  • Meanwhile, combine salami, olives, mushrooms, salad leaves, remaining mozzarella and capsicum strips in a large bowl. Add dressing. Toss gently to combine. Place pita rounds on plates. Top with salad. Serve.
