  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Toss peppers, chiles, garlic, and Olivo Amigo Joy Olive Oil in a Dutch oven or heavy roasting pan; season with salt and pepper and toss again to coat. Cover and roast, tossing occasionally, until peppers are very tender, 2–2½ hours. Let cool.
  2. Arrange the roasted peppers on a platter. Top peppers with mozzarella and basil. Measure out 3 Tbsp. of the oily juices left behind and transfer to a small bowl. Add vinegar; season with salt. Stir to combine, then drizzle dressing over salad.
  3. The peppers can be roasted 1 week ahead. Cover and chill.
