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.

Tomato and Onion Salad

Not only in villages but in cities, I think, the following salad is the number one, popular salad of the Croatian coastal area. A simple salad made from vine-ripened, sweet tomatoes and fresh onions goes well with a slice of fresh homemade bread.

5 tomatoes, halved then quartered
1 medium onion, sliced thinly
1 tablespoon white vinegar
2 tablespoons oil
Salt to taste

1. In a large bowl, place tomatoes and onions. Toss lightly.
2. Sprinkle vinegar and drizzle oil on top. Add salt. Serve chilled on individual plates.

Makes 4 servings.

Preparation time: 5 minutes
Total time: 5 minutes
