Moroccan Salsa

Recipe from: Dr. Jenny

3 medium red bell pepper
5 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ cup pitted kalamata olive, or other brine-cured black olives
½ cup red onion, chopped
⅓ cup cilantro, chopped
¼ cup golden raisin
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons mint, chopped, packed
2 teaspoons grated orange peel
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper

Char peppers over gas flame or in broiler until blackened on all sides, turning frequently with tongs. Transfer peppers to medium bowl. Cover with foil; let stand 10 minutes. Peel, seed, and coarsely chop peppers; return to same bowl.

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in heavy small skillet over medium heat. Add cumin and cinnamon; stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Pour oil mixture over peppers. Mix in olives, next 7 ingredients, and 2 tablespoon oil. Season salsa with salt and pepper.
