About This Recipe

Yield:1 1/2 quarts
This recipe appears in: In Season: Peppers


  • 4 or 5 stems broccoli
  • 3 red bell peppers
  • 1/2 small bunch fresh tarragon or basil
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup tarragon vinegar
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper


  1. 1

    Wash broccoli and cut into small florets. Seed the peppers and slice them into slivers. Wash and mince the herb.

  2. 2

    Blanch the broccoli in rapidly boiling water until tender (4 to 5 minutes). Plunge into ice water to cool and then drain well.

  3. 3

    Combine the remaining ingredients with the minced herb. Pour half of the dressing over the broccoli and pepper slivers and toss well. Taste and add more dressing if desired; the full amount of dressing was far too much for me, which I discovered after tossing it all it, but maybe it will suit you.
