Salata mashwiya or Israeli spicy roasted pepper dip

Updated: Apr 25, 2021

This is an intense sauce that pairs perfectly with any grilled meat. I have also mixed it in with couscous for some addition zing. It is smokey, spicy and has the perfect balance of flavor and heat.

2 red peppers

2 tomatoes

2 green chiles, or to taste

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1/4 teaspoon ground caraway seed, I used coarsly pounded

2 tablespoons lemon juice

Salt and pepper to taste

3 tablespoons olive oil


Roast the red peppers, chilies and tomatoes in an oven till charred, this will be different for each of them so be vigilant. Remove, cool, and peel off the skins and dice finely.

Mix in all the remaining ingredients.,stir well, taste and adjust for salt and lemon.

Allow the sauce to sit for the flavors to meld together.
