This made for a fun dinner! I was able to prep/marinate everything way ahead of time and then making the dinner was a snap. The salsa was a delicious blend of flavors! Next time, I would half the amount though. The chicken wings and artichokes were really good. Who know you could deep fry artichokes?! Yum. Made for ZWT8 Spain. Thank you!
