This lively flavored mayonnaise is prepared by adding reduced tomato purée and peeled and diced sweet red peppers to basic mayonnaise. It is, of course, possible to prepare the sauce with canned pimentos and tomato paste, but much of the spirit and vitality of the sauce is then lost. Use sweet red peppers (4 ounces/125 grams, peeled and diced), ¼ cup (60 milliliters) tomato purée, and 1 cup (250 milliliters) mayonnaise base. This sauce also benefits from the addition of an extra tablespoon or two (15 to 30 milliliters) good wine vinegar and a good pinch of cayenne pepper or dash of hot pepper sauce.
