Roasted Red and Yellow Pepper Bruschetta

Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers. A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked.

Beautiful red, yellow and orange peppers were calling my name….the green ones were not…….willing me to buy them to be roasted……not pickled.

Roasted peppers are delicious on their own, as a topping for pizza, tossed in a green salad, Summer Garden Corn Salad, pasta, sandwiches and as another topping for bruschetta.

Presented in a small mason jar, they are perfect as a hostess gift, a little something for the neighbour and a jar for myself.
