  • SERVINGS: MAKES ABOUT 1 CUP
  • FAST
  • MAKE-AHEAD
  1. 1 medium tomato, halved crosswise and seeded
  2. 1 small red bell pepper
  3. 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  4. 3 tablespoons sliced almonds
  5. 1 garlic clove, minced
  6. 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  7. 3 tablespoons coarse dry bread crumbs
  8. 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  9. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  1. Preheat the broiler and broil the tomato and bell pepper until the skins are charred. Transfer the pepper to a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let steam for 5 minutes. Peel the vegetables and discard the charred skins, seeds and stem. Coarsely chop the tomato and pepper and add them to a food processor along with any accumulated juices.
  2. In a small skillet, heat the oil. Add the almonds and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until slightly golden, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and crushed red pepper and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the bread crumbs and remove from the heat. Scrape the mixture into the food processor and puree until smooth. Blend in the vinegar. Scrape the sauce into a bowl and season with salt and pepper.
Make Ahead The sauce can be refrigerated for up to 3 days. Serve at room temperature.
