Ok, back on track.
This really was an easy dinner. Easy for a couple of reasons: 1. Chris did the bbq'ing. 2. I didn't actually have to cook anything. 3. While the dinner was on the grill - I texted my gf, I had a cold beer, I petted my dogs over and over, I talked about my bike ride at the gym - I don't think that anyone listened, and I played with my mini food process - I love that thing.
Man - am I distracted tonight. Lots on my mind I guess.
Ok - these gems....
Served with a salad, T-bone steak and grilled Quesadillas with spinach and havarti.
Grilled Salsa Sims Style
1/2 an onion - we used Walla Walla - nothing like them
1 cob of corn
A bunch of cilantro
1/2 a jalapeno
On the grill - grill the onion, tomato and pepper - keep them all whole - and just throw them on the grill. Don't add anything. Seriously, nothing. Grill on medium heat for about 20 minutes. I had boiled the cob of corn the night before - but you could grill this too.
With a sharp knife, cut the kernels off the cob. What a great sentence. Kernels off the cob.
In a food processor, chop the onion and the jalapeno. Add in the cilantro and a pinch of kosher salt. Chop that up too. Then add the tomatoes and the pepper. Chop it up. Chop or grind to the consistency that you like. Pour it into a bowl - and then add in the corn.
Ta-da! You have a wonderful, quick and flavourful salsa.
Alrighty - I am going to try and talk my husband into taking me to Qoola. So far - the persuasion isn't going so well. I think that I will trick him and say that they are giving out free guitar lessons - or that Metallica was spotted there. So many things to trick him with.
