Balsamic Thyme Grilled Peppers

These Balsamic Thyme Grilled Peppers are super easy to make, only 6 ingredients, and over-the-top delicious. They make the perfect side dish or appetizer with some crusty bread! I love adding these to a cheeseboard or appetizer spread as well. They're great for so many things!

For the peppers

  • 5 bell peppers, quartered or cut into large strips (I used a mixture of red, orange, and yellow)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

For the marinade

  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, plus extra for serving
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  1. Preheat an outdoor grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Place bell peppers into a medium bowl and add the olive oil, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat. Grill peppers for 4-5 minutes per side, or until grill marks appear and desired doneness is reached.

  2. Meanwhile, make the marinade. In a medium bowl, whisk together the balsamic, olive oil, dijon, garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper. Set aside. Once peppers are finished grilling, immediately toss them in the marinade and let sit for 15 minutes or so at room temperature to absorb all of the flavors. Sprinkle with extra fresh thyme and serve!

Recipe Notes

*I love serving these as a side dish, or with crusty bread and cheeses as an appetizer!
*They keep really well in the fridge for up to 1 week!
