Simple Grape Salad

Grapes in a Bowl
Grapes Salad is a perfect compliment to your Christmas Dinner menu.

When it comes to food- I want simplicity. Sometimes we get bogged down by fancy recipes with extravagant spices and ingredients, that we loose the true taste of the food.

That’s why I enjoy this recipe so much. It’s my mother’s recipe for a simple grape salad which is found on our Christmas table every year.  The key to  this recipe is ensuring the grapes are ripe and sweet, and I only use Missouri Northern Pecans because these local pecans are small and super sweet and are perfect for this recipe.

Switch it up this holiday and try serving this salad for your Christmas dinner, it’s sure to be a hit!
