Romesco SauceFiery red-orange in color and thick enough to use as a dipping sauce or spread, this Romesco Sauce complements your grilled summer foods. Grill-roasted red bell peppers, slivered almonds and spices make this sauce rich and flavorful. Plus, this Romesco Sauce Recipe is easy to make; just throw the ingredients in a blender and push “pulse.” This recipe is excerpted from Karen Adler and Judith Fertig’s The Gardener & the Grill (Running Press, 2012), an outstanding grilling guide with seasonal recipes, tips on grilling for preserving and full-color photography. Take your next dinner party to the patio with freshly harvested vegetables grilled to perfection alongside savory meats and plump grilled fruits. 

A classic Spanish sauce thickened with bread and ground almonds, Romesco tastes wonderful on grilled vegetables and seafood. It is a great spread for the Grilled Chicken Ciabatta Sandwich With Romesco Sauce and Baby Greens. To toast almonds, sprinkle them on a baking sheet and toast in a 350°F oven for 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
