And That’s-So-“Grape” Salad, made with the often forgotten but always beloved grapes, is helping them make a big, “fruit-alicious” comeback! This salad frequented a lot of our grandparents’ get-togethers in the past, but it is now time for this tangy zest-of-life to get its rightful spot on the up-and-coming salad bar. These juicy, sweet grapes are staged with sweet, tart, and creamy cream cheese yumminess and will make everyone stand up and take notice. So don’t be “wine”-ing (Get it?! Grapes make wine.) about wanting a new go-to salad because That’s-So-“Grape” Salad is it!
