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.

Watermelon Salsa

Everyone always looks at this dish skeptically when I tell them that it is a salsa made from watermelon, but they are always pleasantly surprised. I like the mixture of sweet and hot flavors…and I make it plenty hot. If you would prefer a milder salsa, reduce the amount of peppers, or use all jalapenos. This is a favorite with chile-lime flavored tortilla chips or grilled red snapper. It is also great over simply prepared chicken or other types of assertive seafood and fish.

3 cups diced watermelon
1/2 cup finely diced bell peppers
1/4 cup sliced scallions
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons minced jalapenõ peppers
1 minced scotch bonnet or habanero pepper

Combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour and up to 6 hours before serving. Stir before serving.

Makes about 4 cups.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Chilling Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour, 10 minutes
