Apricot Meatballs with Mediterranean Dinner Rolls and Salsa

I’m not sure if it’s actually spanish but at least I got this recipe from a spanish exchange student. It certainly tastes kinda mediterranean and is great for warm summer nights, along with red wine.
My favourite part of this dish are the dinner rolls that go great with a lot of other dishes too

For meatballs:
1 lb ground meat
1 egg
12 -13 dried apricots
1 ts garlic powder
1 ts onion powder
1 chilli
salt to taste

For dinner rolls:
12 – 13 dark olives
5 dried and soused tomatoes
1 1/4 c flour
1 egg
1 tbs dry yeast
2 tbs olive oil
salt and sugar to taste

For salsa:
1 scallion
4 tbs tomato paste
2 tbs ketchup
2 tbs olive oil
salt to taste

It’s best to start with the dinner rolls. Preheat oven to 350 °F. Chop olives and tomatoes and then mix with flour, oil and salt until it becomes a thick mixture. If it’s to thick you may have to add some more oil or water. Form dough to dinner rolls and bake for 15 – 20 min

In the meantime, slice apricots and chilli and mix with other ingredients. There are several ways to make meatballs, I usually fry them in a pan but you can as well use the oven or cook them in water.

Lastly prepare salsa, by chopping scallion and mixing it with the other ingredients.

Serve with yellow peppers or green salad
