T & E Dinner 1

Our friends T and E are HUGE hockey fans, so we invited them to watch the NHL playoffs and for dinner.  Since we ate on the sofa during the game, I made very casual food.  Here's what we had:


Appetizers were store bought chips, homemade salsa and homemade guacamole

Dinner was marinated chicken breast sandwiches, Hawaiian macaroni potato salad and crunchy peanut slaw

Dessert consisted of peach and strawberry crumble with vanilla ice cream

*Helpful hint: Finely chop the chills in a food processor or use gloves so your fingers won't burn from the chili oil



Salsa
4 large tomatoes, diced
1 onion, diced
1 bunch green onions, sliced (green part only)
3-4 serrano chilis, finely diced*
3 Tbsp. white vinegar
2 Tbsp. canola oil
1 tsp. cumin
2-3 tsp. garlic salt
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients a few hours before serving to allow flavors to blend



Marinade
1-1/2 C. salad oil
3/4 C. soy sauce
1/4 C. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 C. red wine vinegar
1/3 C. lemon juice
2 Tbsp. dry mustard
2-1/2 tsp. salt
1-1/2 tsp. parsley
1 Tbsp. black pepper
1 clove garlic

Combine all ingredients in blender and blend for 30-40 seconds.  Keep for up to 1 week in refrigerator.  Marinate meat for overnight for best flavor.
