Detail of Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

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.

Light Potato Salad

Yellow onion is used in this recipe. Although it goes against tradition, I have used Red or Spanish onion.

4 potatoes, sliced and peeled
1 onion, sliced
2 tablespoons white vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt to taste

1. In a medium pot, add potatoes. Fill pot with water covering potatoes. Add a pinch of salt. Let boil and then simmer for 20 minutes until tender. Drain using a colander.
2. In a large bowl, place the potatoes. Add onions, mix well with a wooden spoon.
3. In a small bowl, add vinegar, oil and salt. Whisk until smooth. Pour mixture in the potato bowl. Toss until coated.

Makes 4 servings.
