1/4 cup olive oil

24 pearl onions, peeled and stem end trimmed but left intact, and halved lengthwise

12 small, whole pepperoncini, or other small, mild chiles (see Note)

1 teaspoons salt

1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper

Sherry vinegar, for drizzling


  1. In a large cast iron skillet heat 2 tablespoons of the oil over medium heat. Add the onions and the chiles and saute, turning with tongs to make sure they brown evenly, for 6 to 8 minutes, or until golden. Add the salt and pepper, toss to mix, and remove from the heat. Drizzle with the remaining olive oil and serve, drizzled with a little sherry vinegar.

Cook’s Note

If you can't find small mild chiles, use Anaheims, cut into long, thick strips.
