Napoleons don’t have to come from the bakery! These unique summery entrées or sides consist of layers of creamy homemade dill crab salad and refreshing watermelon rounds.

*To prepare watermelon rounds, slice watermelon into ½-inch-thick circles. Use a 3- or 4-inch cookie cutter to make watermelon rounds that are ½ inch thick and 3 to 4 inches in diameter.
