One of my Magic Elixirs that is an absolute must!
- 2 medium sized, red bell peppers
- 1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
- 1½ tsp salt, divided
- ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
- 2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
- 1 cup Whole30 mayonnaise
- 1 tsp Whole30 compliant hot sauce
- ¼ tsp cayenne
Preheat the broiler and raise the oven rack to 5 or 6 inches below the heat source.
Place the bell peppers on a baking sheet and drizzle evenly with oil. Sprinkle ½ tsp of the salt and pepper over them. Broil until charred, about 15 minutes. Flip the peppers over and broil, flipping every 5 minutes until completely charred, – minutes more. Remove them from the oven and let cool.
Remove and discard the charred skin, seeds and stems. Tip: You can also put it in a paper bag for 15 minutes to let it sweat and easily remove the skin.
Transfer the peppers to a blender or food processor. Add the mayonnaise, vinegar, the remaining 1 tsp of salt, hot sauce and the cayenne. Blend until smooth.
Serve immediately or store in and airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
