Red Pepper Salad
Serves 4

Cooks in Armenian homes store away the hamime pepper mixture in the fall when red peppers come
into season and enjoy hamime throughout the year. Red Pepper Paste is quite similar to hamime pepper
mixture, but is dried before storage. It is likely that the original version of hamime used this dried paste
rather than the fresh pepper mixture used here. If you want to try a recipe using the flavor of the dried
paste, Muhamara dip is a close relative of hamime.
