“It takes four men to dress a salad: a wise man for the salt, a madman for the pepper, a miser for the vinegar, and a spendthrift for the oil.”
Grapes are in season and a fruit salad with grapes is my favourite way of eating them. This simple and delicious Creamy Grape Salad is tart and juicy with a touch of creaminess from the cheese to balance, every mouthful is a burst of flavours.
With so few ingredients, it sounds too simple for a recipe. But in my experience, right pairing of ingredients and then choice of dressing is everything in salads. Adding cheese or Greek yogurt takes the salad to a whole new level of divine. You can add feta, goat’s cheese, cottage or paneer cheese to suit your taste.
The Creamy Grape Salad gets ready in minutes and is a delight as a light lunch, healthy snack or delicious side for a formal meal. It’s addictive and one of the best things you can do with grapes.
