Polenta and Roasted Pepper Salad
Ingredients
4 cups reduced sodium chicken broth
3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil, divided
1 cup polenta
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese shredded, divided
1/2 of a 16- oz. jar Nob Hill Trading Co. Roasted Bell Peppers
1/2 of a 2.2- oz. can sliced ripe olives drained
1/4 cup fresh basil snipped
2 tbsp. white balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper freshly ground
2 tbsp. pine nuts toasted*
Directions
Prep time: 15 minutes, Cook time: 15 minutes Chill time: at least 1 hour

Lightly spray an 11-by-7-inch pan with olive oil cooking spray; set aside. Bring broth and 1/2 tbsp. olive oil to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add polenta; cook and stir over low heat for 15 minutes. Stir in 1/4 cup cheese and pour into prepared pan; chill until firm, at least 1 hour. Cut polenta into 3/4-inch cubes and place in a large mixing bowl. Drain peppers, reserving marinade, and cut into bite-size strips. Add peppers, olives, remaining 1/2 cup cheese and basil to bowl with polenta. Whisk together pepper marinade, remaining 2 tbsp. olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Drizzle over polenta and toss lightly to coat. Sprinkle with pine nuts.

Makes 6 to 8 servings.

*To toast pine nuts, cook on a baking sheet at 375°F for 5 to 10 minutes, checking and stirring frequently. Or, cook in a small skillet over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently until golden brown.
