Salsa Criolla from Argentina

Argentinian Appetizer

SALSA CRIOLLA
(barbecue salsa)

INGREDIENTSSalsaCriolla-

1 green bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
1 clove garlic
1 onion
2 Roma tomatoes
2 teaspoons parsley
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

PREPARATION

Remove seeds from both bell peppers. Dice green bell pepper, red bell pepper, garlic, onion, and tomatoes. Put pepper, salt and red wine vinegar in mixing bowl. Stir until salt dissolves. Stir remaining ingredients into mixing bowl. Refrigerate for at least two hours.

TIDBITS

1) “Salsa criolla” is an anagram for “Class Aria – lol,” something you might text from your iPadTM while watching an opera.

2) It is not, however, a palindrome. A palindrome is the same thing backward as forward.

3) Here are some culinary palindromes:
A man, a plan, a cat, a ham, a yak, a yam, a hat, a canal-Panama!
A nut for a jar of tuna.
Desserts, I stressed!
Do offer ref food.
Evil olive
Elk rap song? No sparkle.
Go hang a salami, I’m a lasagna hog.
Lived on DecafTM; faced no Devil.
Ma has a ham.
No lemon, no melon
Sit  on a potato pan, Otis.
Tuna roll or a nut?
Won tons, not now?
Yo Bob! Mug o’ gumbo, boy?

Jamaican Curried Chicken

Jamaican Entree

CURRIED CHICKEN

INGREDIENTSCurryCh-

2 chicken breasts
1 medium potato
1 red bell pepper
3 garlic cloves
2 stalks green onion
1 large onion
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon celery seed
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 1/2 tablespoons Jamaican curry powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon turmeric

PREPARATION

Cut chicken and potato into 1/2″ cubes. Removes seeds from red bell pepper. Mince bell pepper, garlic, green onion, and onion. Add vegetable oil, bell pepper, garlic, green onion, and onion to frying pan. Sauté at medium-high heat or until onions are tender.

Add chicken cubes, potato cubes, broth, celery seed, curry powder, pepper, thyme, and turmeric. Cook with lid off on low-medium heat for about 20 minutes or until potato bits are tender. Stir occasionally. Serve to your new best friends.

TIDBITS

1) Curry, while a tasty spice blend, is not a particularly fun spice despite what the “Fun Facts About Curry” would have you believe.

2) Tim Curry, however, is much more interesting. He starred in the cult classic movie, The Rocky Horror Picture Show. He auditioned for the role by singing, “Tutti Frutti.” He had a dog named Frank.

3) One of the biggest movie flops of all times was the movie Ishtar. Ishtar is an anagram for “Hi, rats.”

4) “O,” “A,” and “I” are the shortest palindromes in the English language.

5) “ ” is the shortest palindrome spoken by mimes.
