Thick, rich, and velvety, this intensely flavored salad dressing is best paired with sturdy ingredients that can stand up to its weight. Toss with a salad of chopped Belgian endive, romaine, and sweet onion, or try it with shrimp, corn, and watercress.
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup chopped roasted red peppers (rinse if jarred)
3 tablespoons tomato paste
2 tablespoons chopped red onion
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon sugar
How to Make It
