Hello everyone – happy weekend! Yeah, so much needed weekend. I am excited about some movie nights, a few cocktails, and hopefully some cooking (TBD because I am still not sure what I want to make and photograph). But if you are looking for a delicious salad, look no further. You’ve got it! By the way, there are so many other salad ideas on my blog.
or you can make these Hrechaniks (Ukrainian Buckwheat Croquettes), if you have some extra time. They are truly unique and tasty!
Anyway, a salad guy (myself) is back! :)
Roasted Grape Salad
Indeed, I made this Roasted Grape Salad last autumn, and I finally decided to share it. Isn’t it beautiful? I love roasting grapes for my recipes, and I used idea for Roasted Grape Bruschetta. Roasting grapes is a great way to intensify the flavours and sweetness. And if you skip the savoury ingredients, and use only some honey, a pinch of salt, and probably butter, you will get a wonderful sweet topping, for example for cakes, pancakes, or breakfast.
It really takes just around 20 minutes to roast grapes. How easy is that?
And as I’ve mentioned before, this Roasted Grape Salad is super customizable, too. If you don’t like blue cheese, use other options such as feta or goat cheese. Also, use any nuts of your choice. Almonds, pistachios, and Brazil would be a good substitution. You can add other ingredient, too. Think of slices of prosciutto or crisp bacon. Sounds delish, right?
So I hope you like this Roasted Grape Salad, and you will try this recipe soon. If you try it, let me know in this post or send me an Instagram message or share you photos adding the hashtag #havocinthekitchen.
See you soon!
