Preheat grill to high. Coat peppers with 1 tsp. oil and sprinkle with salt. Grill, turning as needed, until charred all over, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and cover. When cool enough to handle, cut peppers in half and remove and discard seeds. Using a knife, scrape away charred skin. Cut peppers into thick slices and place in a medium bowl. Pour Caper-Lemon Vinaigrette over top and toss to coat; set aside.
Brush cheese slices with remaining 2 tsp. oil. Grill cheese until grill marks form, about 1 minute per side. Transfer cheese to a platter along with reserved marinated peppers. Scatter almonds and mint on top and serve immediately.
