    Peter J's Note:

    Classy enough for a dinner party but simple and quick enough for any occasion. Has an interesting contrast of hot versus cold and sweet & sour versus savory tastes. The salsa and vol-au-vents can be prepared in advance making it a quick one to pop in the oven as guests arrive. Please note the preparation time does not include the 30 minutes of refrigeration time for the salsa. The quantity of chicken and cheese will vary a little bit depending on the size of the cases, so fill them by eye using the directions rather than bothering to measure them out.

      This salsa is great - not super hot and a delicious blend of flavours! It really goes well with the melted cheddar and chicken. I couldn't find the small vol-au-vent shells, so I tried it with a package of 6 large ones and it made lunch for three. Went over really well with my husband and son. Should I find the small size vol-au-vents, I'll buy them to give this a whirl as an appetizer, especially since I know in advance we'll love them! Thanks for posting, it's a keeper and I'll probably try the salsa with other things.
