Toasted pecans add a Southern twist to this rustic puree of roasted peppers, garlic, and olive oil. We love it on anything grilled. Or try it tossed with hot cooked pasta or spread on a crusty baguette.

  • 1/3 cup chopped toasted pecans
  • 2 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
