I made this sauce recently to have in the fridge for late night snacks after work. I have since then, eaten it on everything. It’s so handy to make up and keep and it instantly lifts anything it’s put on. Sandwiches, burgers, cheese, chicken, everything you can think of.
Give it a go and I promise it’ll become a standard item in your kitchen.

1 Red Pepper
4 Cloves of Garlic
