Ages ago I entered a recipe contest on a whim, and ended up the first runner-up. The prize was the Cooking with All Things Trader Joe’s Cookbook, which became one of my favorites. It also began a nice collaborative relationship with the authors, Deana Gunn and Woni Miniati. I’ve been contributing recipes to their cookbooks ever since.
When I saw that one of my favorite magazines, Saveur, was having a Home Cook’s Recipe Challenge and the topic was “BBQ side dishes” I knew exactly what to enter. It’s one of my favorite recipes which I’ve been making for something like 15 years. My Roasted Red Pepper Salad with Pine Nuts is not only delicious, but simple to prepare (the peppers roast right on the grill next to your burgers or ribs). It also happens to be delicious!
Check out the recipe, give it a try (you won’t be sorry!), and cast your vote today! Thank you!
