ingredients

  • 1 (7 ounce) jar roasted red peppers (most jars are about 7 oz, if you want to make your own, approximately 1 large bell pepper roasted pe)
  • 1 12 tablespoons balsamic vinegar (you can substitute red wine if you want, it changes the flavor a bit but it will work just fine)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons shallots, minced
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes (optional)
  • salt
  • pepper

directions

  • Dressing -- If you are using jarred red pepper, drain and then add them and all the other ingredients to a food processor and blend. That is it! Also, don't worry if you get a little of the roasted red pepper liquid in the food processor as well, it is all good flavor and it won't affect the dressing. Once pureed, remove and transfer to a measuring cup or small bowl. Perfect salad dressing. If you want add the red pepper flakes, it adds a nice kick. But if not, just leave them out. Still a great dressing and so simple.

    I am so grateful to find this recipe, because for years I have been trying to find an old Weight Watcher's recipe from the 1970 's, which featured a jar of Mancini Roasted Peppers as the main ingredient. It was delicious, and so easy to make in the blender, with just a few ingredients. But alas, there's no trace of this recipe anywhere. This is the closest I can come to it, and I just made my first batch. YES, it is delicious, but it makes such a small amount ! I can't believe no one has mentioned this. It barley filled up a 5oz jar. You would have to at least TRIPLE the amount of everything, to cover 2 or 3 portions of salad. After going through all the trouble of making and blending this, you want it to last a while, don't you ?

    We really enjoyed this dressing! The tang that the balsamic gave to the red peppers was excellent. I didn't have shallots on hand, so I upped the garlic a bit, but I think it would be very good with the shallots. Thanks for sharing!
