Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

A great dish for dessert or breakfast, these filled crepes are quick and easy to make, full of wonderful flavor, and make any occasion special.

Tuna, Tomato, and Cannellini Bean Salad

No-cook main dish salads are a staple in my household during the summer. Our kitchen is always the hottest room in the house, and using the oven or stove increases the temperature substantially. Which makes recipes like this one a blessing. It is quick, easy, and inexpensive to throw together. It is wonderful for casual entertaining served with some fresh crusty bread and sliced fruit.

3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
15 ounces drained and rinsed cannellini beans
7 ounce can drained and flaked tuna
3/4 cup halved grape or cherry tomatoes
1 bunch minced scallions
1/2 cup minced basil
4 minced garlic cloves
8 cups washed and torn salad greens

Mix together the vinegars and oil in a small bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the beans, tuna, tomatoes, scallions, basil, and garlic and mix well. Add the salad greens and toss well before serving.

Makes 4 servings.
