What do you do when you’re in the mood to spice up your sandwiches, or looking for a new salad to serve for dinner? You switch on the oven and make some pickled roasted peppers! That’s the mood I was in the other day, plus I had just returned from the grocery store with a bag full of bell peppers. The timing was perfect!
I popped the bell peppers into the oven to roast away, then kept myself busy catching up on different tasks that needed finishing. This wasn’t as easy as it sounds, since a delicious scent of roasted peppers continuously wafted into my direction, but somehow I managed.
Before I knew it, my roasted bell peppers were out of the oven, peeled, sliced, and dressed with a not too sweet, slightly sour dressing, and I was enjoying them in one of my super duper whoppa sandwiches!
So, whether you’re in the mood to spice up your sandwiches, or maybe you’re just looking for a new salad to serve for dinner, I highly recommend you give these pickled roasted peppers a try!
