  • 1/2 of a rustic bread loaf, about 4 slices, cut into 1 ” slices (smaller is fine if your loaf is pre-sliced)
  • 3 bell peppers varies colors, cutting so there is more flat surface area to grill, about 4 pieces per pepper

  • 1/2 cup white balsamic
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Brush olive oil on all sides of peppers and onions.  Sprinkle with salt just before placing on a preheated hot grill.
  2. Grill until peppers and onions are lightly charred on both sides and the bread slices are toasty on both sides.  Set aside to cool.
  3. Whisk the vinaigrette.
  4. Drain white beans and place in a bowl with artichoke hearts.
  5. Add half of the vinaigrette and toss together.
  6. Cut grilled vege and bread into bite-sized chunks and toss in bowl along with fresh basil leaves.
