Delicious and juicy grapes are a welcome ingredient in so many dishes, but salads can be especially delicious with grapes.
We're sharing our favorite salads with grapes. Grape salads come in a few different varieties, like a classic Waldorf salad (fruit and nuts in a mayonnaise dressing), a chicken and grape salad (usually used for sandwiches), green salads with grapes (often containing brussels sprouts or arugula), and fruit salads with grapes (usually with a variety of chopped fruit).

How to Choose the Best Grapes
Grapes are best when you check a few things before you buy them!
- The grape texture should be firm and plump with no visible wrinkling.
- The grape stem should be green and firm, brown stems indicate they are older and may already be too sour.
- Choose grapes that are in season. Here’s a great guide on grapes varieties and their peak seasons.
- Do not wash your grapes before storing them in the refrigerator – it will lead to them molding. Rinse them thoroughly before eating them.
