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 (that I serve for Christmas dinner occasionally).
The key to a this recipe is ensuring the grapes are ripe and tasty. Plus, I only use Missouri Northern Pecans because they are sweet and small (you can find them in most all grocery stores.)
