These grilled bell peppers are a simple side dish that you can prepare when you don’t want to heat up the oven to make grilled stuffed peppers.

The peppers are halved and then grilled using the Hamilton Beach searing grill. Then, the peppers are sliced and feta cheese with a tangy dressing is added to the plate.

You can serve it as is or place it on a bed of lettuce or mixed spring greens for a light lunch.

This is such a simple recipe to make that you can have it ready in about 15 minutes. It can serve more or less depending on how many peppers you grill. 

Because it contains basically peppers, feta cheese, and a dressing, this is a delicious low-carb side dish that we often enjoy year-round.

Tools / Equipment for this recipe

This indoor searing grill helps me enjoy grilling all year long. It has a high heat that helps lock in flavor and juices when grilling meat.

But, it also lets you use a variable temperature control when you want to grill fruits and vegetables like these Grilled Peppers with Feta Cheese.

Plus, it comes with a hood window that makes it easy to keep an eye on my food without lifting the lid which alters the temperature.

The non-stick drip plate and drip tray make clean up easy when I’m done.

What are the best peppers to use for grilled peppers with feta?

I love the color of yellow, orange, and red peppers combined. I think it makes for an attractive side dish. 

But, you can really use any type of pepper for grilled peppers. Or, if you prefer, you could make grilled poblano peppers or even use mini bell peppers.

How to store leftovers

Grilled peppers with feta is definitely best enjoyed hot right off the grill. But, if you do have leftovers, you can store them in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 days. 

When you want to reheat your grilled peppers with feta, place them in the microwave for a few seconds to warm them up. Then, place them on a bed of lettuce and serve. You may need to add a bit more Italian dressing when you serve them.
