My friend who recently came down from California, believe it or not gifted me with grapes harvested from her own family's Napa Valley grape plantation and wineries. Yes, she married into a family who's been into wine making for the longest time . Swell. And the green seedless grapes were delivered in a large balikbayan box, delivered door-to-door in time for her arrival.
And so, after disbursing some to my mom's and brothers' I asked myself, what shall I do with these luscious looking fruits?
Good thinking. There's more than enough to prepare a green grape salad concoction such as this:
1 kilo seedless grapes, washed very well, peeled, refrigerated in
a separate glass bowl
1 cup grated queso de bola
1 cup grated ordinary cheddar
1 cup lemon juice
1 cup mascuvado sugar
2 cups sour cream
Mix everything in a large glass mixing bowl. Chill. When almost ready to eat, toss peeled grapes into the mixture. Serve lusciously :-)
This is really decadent as far as a health nut like myself is concerned.
