Method

Position the oven rack in the second – highest position. Preheat the broiler. Brush the bell peppers with oil, and season them lightly with salt. Place them on their sides on a baking sheet, leaving about 3 inches between the tops of the peppers and the broiler flame or unit. Broil for 5 minutes on each side. This should take 20 to 25 minutes. The skins will become charred and the flesh soft. Place the peppers in a heatproof bowl. Cover tightly with plastic wrap. Let them sit for 20 minutes.

Finely dice pepper flesh, discarding skin, ribs and seeds, and transfer it to a medium bowl. Add the walnuts, Peppadews, cherry pepper, and ¼ olive oil, vinegar and ½ teaspoon of salt, stirring to incorporate.

For the broccolini: Bring 4 quarts of water to boil, with the salt in a large pot over medium-high heat. Fill a large bowl with ice water. Trim 1 inch from end of each broccolini stem and discard. Add the broccolini to the boiling water and blanch for 1 minute. Then transfer to ice water until cooled. Pat dry with paper towel.

To serve, arrange the broccolini on a serving dish. Top with the pepper relish and the feta (to taste) Serve at room temperature.
