If an open flame isn’t available, a broiler can be used. Slice the pepper in half and remove the core, seeds and membrane. On a broiler plate, place peppers open side down and broil until skins are black .

  3. Whisk the first 8 ingredients together in a bowl large enough to hold the entire salad.
  4. Add the onion and Ontario greenhouse cucumber, then marinate for 20 minutes.
  5. Add the romaine lettuce hearts, Ontario greenhouse peppers and tomatoes and mint to the bowl and toss.
  6. Arrange the salad on a platter or divide evenly on serving plates.
  7. Sprinkle with kalamata olives and feta cheese
