Each bite is a symphony of flavors – savory feta cheese, tangy olives, aromatic herbs, and juicy tomatoes, all nestled inside sweet bell peppers. Thanks for sharing.
I think using a mix of feta and goat cheese for the stuffing would give it a creamy tanginess, though traditional feta sounds yummy too! 🧀🫑
