Daily Shopping at Quest with Starla

I am planning to go to a family dinner and have found some lovely things to take with me: Green Salsa and Corn chips, and a fresh and fantastic fruit with Almond Cake.

Today at Quest Food Exchange I found...
Strawberries
Grapes
Cillantro
Italian Almond Cake
Tomatillos
Hot sauce
Corn Chips


Recipe for my Green Salsa

Ingredients

* 8 tomatillos, husked
* 3 shallots - I used green onions instead
* 2 cloves garlic, peeled
* 1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chile peppers - Quest has hot sauce as an alternative
* 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
* 1 fresh jalapeno pepper, seeded
* salt to taste

Directions

1. In a food processor, place tomatillos, shallots, garlic, green chile peppers, cilantro, jalapeno pepper and salt. Using the pulse setting, coarsely chop. Cover and chill in the refrigerator until serving.

Fruit and Cake

Ingredients

* Prepared Almond Cake
* Cantaloupe
* Peaches
* Strawberries
* Grapes
* Sugar

Directions

1. Clean and cut Canatloupe into one inch squares
2. Cut peaches into wedges
3. Cut Strawberries and grapes into halves.
4. Take 3 tablespoons of sugar and blend with fruit
5. Set in refrigerator
6. When you are ready for dessert, cut almond cake in to wedges and lay flat on plate. Place a liberal portion of chilled fruits on the cake and serve.

*** You can also add a dollop of whipped cream of yogurt.
