  1. Step 1

    Preheat grill on high. Place the capsicum, skin-side up, on a baking tray. Cook under the grill for 10-12 mins or until skins are charred and blistered. Transfer to a heatproof bowl. Cover and set aside to cool slightly.

  2. Step 2

    Place the pita on a lightly greased baking tray. Cook under the grill for 1 min each side or until crisp and toasted.

  3. Step 3

    Combine the paprika, chilli flakes, if using, oregano, vinegar, honey and oil in a screw-top jar and shake until well combined. Place the onion in a small bowl. Drizzle with the dressing and set aside for 15 mins to develop the flavours. 

  4. Step 4

    Remove skin from the capsicum and discard. Coarsely chop capsicum flesh. Place in a bowl with the tomato, radish and parsley and toss to combine. 

  5. Step 5

    Divide capsicum mixture and pita among bowls. Top with onion mixture.
