Roasted grapes have become a new addiction. Last year I made a roasted grape tart and in November, at Bottega I had them in salad. Similar to roasting grape tomatoes, roasting grapes brings out the sweetness and they are lovely warm or cold. Once you have one you will keep popping another into your mouth. Warm they were such a treat.
You can make them in 10 minutes and then refrigerate in an airtight container until ready to use.
Yesterday I made a salad for lunch, using radicchio and endive and topped it with the grapes, a Herbs de Humboldt goat cheese I had by Cypress Grove and toasted hazelnuts. I topped with a low-fat balsamic vinaigrette. It has 5 Weight Watcher’s Points Plus 2012. If you take the cheese out it drops to 3 points plus but the protein is also lowered. You could add grilled chicken to the salad to make it a main meal.
