making filling for capsicum sandwich
In a bowl, add 2 tbsp finely chopped onions/shallots, 3 tbsp finely chopped tomatoes, 1/4 cup finely chopped capsicum/green bell peppers.
Add 1/2 cup tightly packed grated cheddar cheese or processed cheese.
Add the seasonings - 1/4 tsp black pepper powder or crushed black pepper, 1 tsp dry oregano, 1 tsp dry basil or 1/2 tbsp chopped basil leaves. Instead of basil you can also add chopped coriander or mint leaves. Use herbs which you have or the ones which you like. You can also use italian seasoning.
Mix everything. Check the taste and then add salt. Just a pinch or two is fine as cheese already has salt.

Spread butter on the bread slices.
Spoon the capsicum tomato filling on half of the slices..

Spread some butter on top of the sandwiches if you want.
Serve cheese capsicum sandwich with tomato ketchup or chili sauce.
