Retro Grape Salad

August 20, 2013

Grape Salad

I saw a picture of this on Pinterest and I had to make it right away. Any other Pinterest-peeps get this? I do a good deal of pinning, and I will often come back to scroll through the recipes I’ve pinned find dinner inspiration. But once in a while something pops up and I have to make it right away. This Retro Grape Salad was one of those recipes. To me, grapes are the classic summer fruit.

As I was making this (it took about 10 minutes), I got the feeling that this was not a new recipe. It just screamed 50’s pot-luck for some reason. I felt like putting on a gingham apron and heels. I called my mom and she confirmed, this is definitely a retro recipe. Why hadn’t I seen it before? Then I realized – it’s not exactly low fat. Now days it seems like every time you get together pot-luck style, everyone’s reply to praise is, “And it’s healthy too!” So many people are trying to make everything “low-fat/no-fat”. Well… not me. I’m a “some-fat/yum-fat” kinda girl. Besides, this is a fruit salad, that’s healthy-ish, right?

Whatever your take, this  grape salad is delicious. If you really want to know, I was tempted to eat the entire batch immediately. Seriously, I had to exercise my self-control, tell myself that I will get sick if eat any more, and put the spoon down. Fortunately, Timmy wasn’t a fan (he doesn’t really like grapes), so I did get to eat the whole batch, just not all at one time.

    I’m a some fat/yum fat girl too (obviously!!) love this post – there’s nothing like a pretty apron and heels!
