This is an excellent way to serve mussels on the half shell. They are topped with a tangy blend of bell peppers and vinaigrette dressing. This makes a good for appetizer for a larger number of guests.

It was good but you have to take the mussels out of the shells for them to soak up the flavors. I would also remove the red wine vinegar and use fresh lemon juice instead. Needed an extra bit of something. Read More
