Roasted bell pepper and feta cheese power this appetizer – Daily Bulletin

Roasted red bell pepper gives these quick-to-prepare appetizers a spark of both flavor and visual appeal. The colorful jumble is made up primarily of crumbled feta cheese, store-bought roasted bell peppers, and green onions. It seems a perfect topping for Belgian endive leaves, but if you prefer, it is also delicious atop sliced baguette.
