Laurel Hazelnut Oil & Roasted Red Pepper Vinaigrette

This extremely quick and bright dressing made with jarred roasted red peppers and Laurel hazelnut oil goes great on prepared veggies like roasted asparagus, sweet lettuces like Boston or Butter lettuce, and is a perfect chimichurri-like sauce for grilled steaks or halibut! The light nutty flavor of Laurel hazelnut oil pairs perfectly with sweet roasted peppers in this vinaigrette.
