Two Tasty and Versatile Dressings – Roasted Red Pepper Goat Cheese Feta and Roasted Green Chile Cila

These dressing are easy, quick and may be used for salads, fish, tacos, and other applications that work well with their flavor profile.

You can blend them up and hold in squirt bottles refrigerated.

Previously posted was “One Chicken Three Meals” in which one dish was roasted chicken enchiladas using the two dressings to complete the plate. While roasting the chicken I also added a mother batch of chiles, tomatoes, turnips, and beets to roast of which the roasted red peppers were used in the preparation but you can get both roasted red peppers and green in most grocery stores in either jars or cans.

Pictured at the top of this post is a salad of Ahi tuna, seared with the roasted red pepper dressing , fresh garden greens, nasturtium leaves and flowers, olives, scallions, radishes, roasted beets, dressed with a little lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil.
