Roasted red pepper vinaigretteRoasted Red Pepper Vinaigrette

is a simple dressing that is fresh and easy to make.  I used my sister’s roasted tomato vinaigrette as the basis for this one.  I just substituted roasted red peppers for the roasted tomatoes.  I used red peppers in this recipe, but  mini ones can be used in this roasted red pepper vinaigrette.  There are times, I am not able to use all of my red peppers and they get wrinkled skin, so this is a great way to use them so I do not lose them.  Often times, I will roast several with garlic cloves at once and keep them in the refrigerator and use as needed.

This homemade roasted red pepper vinaigrette, is so quick and easy.
