Champagne Grapes!

These little beauties are called champagne grapes not to be confused with the wine grape. They are also called Corinth grapes. They are very tiny, seedless and absolutely delicious! If you haven’t tried them in your life you are missing out! They are only available a few late July through the few weeks of August and are grown in California. They get their name of Champagne grapes because someone took a picture of them next to a glass of champagne for a magazine once. I guess you could say they are photo celebrities.

This is my absolute favorite salad to make! Perfect for all seasons, I eat it as a whole meal. It is SO delicious and you can make it entirely with organic produce from Brewers Organics!

Ingredients:

1 head of organic red leave lettuce, spinach or other favorite leafy green

1 cup of dried cranberries

1 lb of almond breaded chicken (optional)

Bake chicken at 350º for 25 minutes. Mix fresh ingredients and toss with your favorite balsamic dressing. I like to switch between a cranberry balsamic or raspberry! The chicken is optional, I’ve had it with pistachios as well. The grapes give a fresh juicy burst of flavor to the salad and the pear is a perfect compliment. Most of the needed ingredients are in your upcoming delivery!
