Peperoncini Vinaigrette With Garlic Sauteed Zoodles

It’s finally happened. I’ve discovered zoodles.

That’s right, I’m entering an entire new world here, folks. Are they noodles? Are they zucchini? Are they perhaps the most amazing hybrid of both worlds, satisfying yet low carb and gluten free? Yes, yes they are. And I’m especially excited to share with you what is pretty much the best combination I’ve found in a long time. Peperoncini Vinaigrette With Garlic Sauteed Zoodles.

 Peperoncini Vinaigrette

Here’s the thing about jarred peppers, like this peperoncini. You buy it, use it a few times, then lose it somewhere in that dark corner of the fridge where food goes to be forgotten. You know the spot, it’s also where my applesauce hides, or the half of an onion I was saving for later.

Which is why I love this recipe so much. Besides for the fact that we’re taking an everyday vinaigrette recipe and turning it into something crave-worthy with Mezzetta Peperoncini! By the way, they’ve been around since 1935, so they know what they’re doing here. 

And you don’t have to sacrifice anything to the back of the fridge.

The peperoncini vinaigrette recipe makes about 1/2 – 3/4 of a cup of dressing, using maybe 1/4 of the jar. You can easily double (or triple, depending on how much you love it!) the recipe, and then simply give the peperoncini a rough chop and add them to your zoodles or salad. It’s really easy to get to the bottom of the jar in one sitting here!

I’d even make this for your next party, and serve it next to an antipasto platter, using the other half of the jar on the platter itself. There’s a really big range of ways you can use pepperoncini, so it’s a great thing to have on hand.

Andrew and I are always packing gluten free wraps to take to the beach with us, too. And I’m definitely taking some of this peperoncini vinaigrette to dip them in! I just can’t get over how incredibly flavorful it is!Peperoncini Vinaigrette
