YAY! Back to great food discovered because of America's holidays! I'm convinced that we Americans have holidays so we can devour great new foods.
Anybody else got a new recipe from our latest holiday? My newest favorite was brought to the holiday brouhaha by Aunt Jan, the great-aunt culinary genius... Grape Salsa!
We ate it again yesterday when the Mom-in-Law brought it and we ate it with corn on the cob and baked potatoes buried deep in the ash of the fire pit--the perfect ending to a country day's work clearing the back slash pile.
2 cups coarsely chopped red grapes
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1/2 cup diced green chilies
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp hot pepper sauce
Mix well and let stand at least an hour. Serve with tortilla chips or GF sliced baguettes.
