Sometimes the greatest recipes are those that simply fall into place. Such is the case of this sweet-and-sour red bell pepper side dish, the brainchild of Evan and Sarah Rich, chefs and owners of San Francisco's newly opened Rich Table. Gleaned from the fortuitous proximity of a sweet-pepper purveyor and a honey stand at the farmers' market, this full-flavored dish is like a gentler version of Italian agrodolce. The menu at Rich Table shifts constantly, but this inspired relish will be a stalwart in our late-summer kitchen.
