I created these stuff mini peppers as an appetizer for a baby shower.  We’re doing a mini theme for the shower – mini appetizers and mini desserts are much more fun than full size. And when things are bite sized, you can sample more of them. ;). So delicious! If you are looking for a main dish try my easy stuffed peppers recipe.


You will cut out and chop one side of each sweet mini pepper along with the other ingredients. Finely chop all the ingredients, cucumber, red onions, kalamata olives, sun-dried tomatoes, and parsley. Next add the feta and dressing prepared in step one. Spoon the filling into the mini peppers and serve or refrigerate until needed.

These vegetarian Stuffed Mini Peppers are full of flavor and perfect for serving as an appetizer at your next party. I always like to serve a healthy appetizer along with all of the other treats at a party, and these mini pepper bites are just the thing. The kalamata olives, sun dried tomatoes, and cucumber filling give these mini peppers a delicious Mediterranean flavor. A red wine vinegar and lemon juice vinaigrette brings the the flavors together in these vegetarian stuffed mini peppers.

For the Vinaigrette

  • 1 ½ tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • ¾ tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • ¾ tablespoon lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • pinch of salt

For the Peppers:

  • 18 sweet mini bell peppers (about 1 pound)

  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese

Make the vinaigrette:

  • Whisk together all vinaigrette ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside.

Prepare the peppers:

  • Lay each pepper down so that it will lay flat. On the top side of each pepper, cut a triangle-shaped opening. Chop the cut out triangle pieces of bell pepper and place them in a medium bowl.
  • To the bowl with the chopped bell pepper pieces, add the cucumber, red onion, kalamata olives, and sun dried tomatoes. Stir to mix. Add the feta and parsley and stir gently until just combined. Carefully stir in the vinaigrette.
