    Manami's Note:

    This quesadilla has everything in it to make my mouth water! :) The caramelized onions make this recipe for me - that's why we added them!!! Loosley based on recipe in Cooking Light Magazine, July 2009 edition. Here they suggest: "Watermelon-jicama salad is a refreshing side dish. Combine 4 cups (1/2-inch) cubed seedless watermelon, 1 1/2 cups (1/2-inch) cubed peeled jicama, 1 cup chopped English cucumber, and 1/2 cup chopped red onion. Add 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, 2 teaspoons sugar, and 1 teaspoon olive oil; toss well." Any fruit salad side dish would be great & very refreshing! Have tweaked it to suit our personal taste!! :).If the Rondele cheese is a bit too pricey - you can take a sharp cheddar, jalapenos, salt, pepper & some light, no-fat sour cream and beat it until it becomes soft & spreadable - of course, with the cheddar at room temp. The same can be done with the horseradish! This is fly-by-night recipe - I make these kinds of concotions off the top of my head, but I am sure someone made them before I! ;)
