I’ve had BLT sandwiches on my mind for days now, since I saw some really nice, big tomatoes at the market. I finally got the time to make them. I wanted a little something special beyond just the usual mayonnaise, so I made up a small batch of this simple roasted green pepper mayonnaise. It doesn’t take long to make. It adds a nice grilled flavor to the sandwich.
I also used this mayo on roasted chicken sandwiches, which came out fantastic too. If you don’t want to roast a pepper, you can use roasted red peppers in a jar, available at your local grocery store (ours has them by the Italian foods and also by the olives).
Roasted Green Pepper Mayonnaise
I made up a small batch of this simple roasted green pepper mayonnaise. It doesn’t take long to make. It adds a nice grilled flavor to any sandwich.
Servings 1 cup
- 1 large green bell pepper
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- Roast the pepper over direct heat on a grill or in an oven (I prefer to crank up the heat on my gas grill and place the pepper directly over the hottest part of the grill. I rotate it every few minutes until it is very charred on all sides).
- Let the pepper cool then seed it and chop it very fine.
- Add to the mayonnaise and combine well.
