1
tablespoon dried herbes de Provence
3
tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
2
teaspoons salt
1/2
cup chopped drained roasted red bell peppers (from 7-ounce jar)

Tips  

Don't have any herbes de Provence on hand? Mix together 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves, 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves, 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram leaves and 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley flakes. Other herbs commonly used in herbes de Provence are fennel seed, lavender, rosemary and savory.

This simple side dish will nicely complement herb-roasted chicken or roasted leg of lamb. Serve with a glass of red wine, and enjoy the flavors of France.
