For this one, you take just about any pepper you find at the market, sweet or hot—shishitos, Jimmy Nardellos (my favorite), Fresnos, sweet Hungarian wax, or cayenne—toss ’em with olive oil and salt, and grill ’em on a hot grill or sear them in a hot pan. The peppers turn into these little time bombs that fill up with this hot pepper juice that bleeds out—when you carefully cut into them after cooking, hence time bombs—and mixes with the brininess of the pickled feta and makes what’s essentially nature’s vinaigrette.
