Garlic Scapes at the Wine Party!

My daughter had a wine party for her girlfriends one weekend when husband was gone ... and I was invited! We all took some food and because I knew nobody would know what garlic scapes are ... I happily stuck a couple in my basket! Of course, I had used some to flavor my food.

I mixed cooked salad size shrimp with lots of fresh garden veges that I had received in my CSA bag that week ... chopped radishes, carrots, peppers and I added crunchy celery, too.  The pretty leaves are Napa cabbage leaves.

I was given a recipe for for peanut sauces 30 years ago from a friend who grew up in Nepal. It is too easy!  Mix 1 cup of creamy peanut butter with 1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce, 1 teaspoon crush garlic, 1 Tablespoon of Soy Sauce and 1 Tablespoon of honey.  I like for the sauce to be slightly thick, but you can thin it with a little peanut oil or canola oil. Drizzle as much as you like over the contents of the wrap and enjoy!

We call "Bang Bang Chicken" ... "Pow Pow Chicken"!  I use the same simple recipe for shrimp or chicken.  I grill the meat, then toss it in a sauce made with 1 cup of Mayonnaise, 1/4 cup of Asian Chili Sauce, 1 teaspoon garlic paste and a couple drops of Siracha.

The more meat you have, the more sauce you'll need and the recipe is easy enough to expand.  I garnished this dish with chopped greens, yellow peppers and sweet onions.  

I'll probably share this with a couple parties listed in my sidebar, so make sure you click through!
