Roasted red peppers are one of my favourite foods and every fall I roast up a large basket of them and put them in the freezer for use throughout the year. Normally I just use them as ingredients in other recipes but it is always fun to dress them up a bit and enjoy them as an appetizer. I like to marinate them in a balsamic marinade that includes olive oil, garlic, onion, oregano, thyme, and a touch of pepper. These marinated roasted red peppers are great all by themselves or on a platter with other appetizers and they also make great ingredients or condiments in other dishes like sandwiches.
