  2. Turn them often so they are really well charred.
  3. Remove the vegetables as they are done, the garlic, for instance will be ready before the onion.
  4. Use the technique shown here, (or your own!), to skin the tomatoes, sweet and hot and peppers. Remove the seeds and stems from the peppers
  5. Remove the really burnt onion skin.
  6. Cut all of the vegetables into nibble sized pieces an place in a large serving bowl.
  7. Squish the garlic from the cloves with a cloth or a palette knife into a small bowl and mix with the garlic pulp.
  8. Add the lemon juice and zest together with the salt, spices and olive oil. Whisk the dressing and mix in with the grilled, chopped vegetables.
  9. Garnish with chopped capers and olives
