Recipes from Martha Ruth Leonard
Good Seasons Salsa
4 small tomatoes, chopped
3.8-oz. can sliced black olives, drained
medium glass bowl, combine the tomatoes, olives, chilies, green onions
and dressing. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Just before
serving, stir in the cheese. Serve with corn chips/scoops.
Shrimp and Crab au Gratin
1 stick butter
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
Melt the butter in a saucepan over very low heat. Stir in the flour and cook about 1 minute over low heat, stirring constantly. Slowly add the milk. Using a whisk, stir briskly until you have a smooth sauce, about 2 minutes. Add the wine, lemon juce, salt, black and cayenne peppers and whisk again. Keep stirring the white sauce until is is smooth and thickened to about the consistency of mayonnaise. Remove from heat. Bring 2 cups water and 1/2 tsp. salt to boil in medium saucepan and add the shrimp. After water boils, cook the shrimp 1 minute. Drain immediately. Roughly chop shrimp and put in large mixing bowl. Add the crabmeat and gently toss with your hands. Pour sauce over the seafood. Gently combine, taking care not to break up crabmeat. Spray an 8-in. square pan with cooking spray (there will be a little left over) or use an 11x7 casserole dish. Pour the mixture into the pan and place the grated cheese on top, completely covering the dish. Bake in a preheated 350° oven for about 25 to 30 minutes, until bubbly. Freezes well. Serves 4-6.
