Grape Salsa

Grape Salsa |

It’s salsa time! Go grab a huge bag of chips and pull up a seat. We’ll snack together and gab and I promise to talk your ear off and tell you all about my summer so far and life in general and just about anything else I can think of. And then my husband will come in and thank you since he didn’t have to listen to me ramble on and on. And on.

And I’ll also tell you about my super awesome friend Meg! Hi Meg! Because you’ll want to go ahead and thank her for this recipe. This glorious grape salsa is alllll her.

I just reaped the benefits after she made it a few months ago for one of our fourteen million friend-time potlucks. Our little group is made up of potlucking fools. We love a good potluck. And this salsa has made an appearance on more than one occasion since she was gracious enough to share the recipe.

And then I went ahead and made it a few times at home. Just for me. The husband was also allowed to eat it. See, I can be nice and share.

Sometimes. Don’t get between me and my chips and salsa. Fair warning.

But, my guess is that you may be pretty possessive of this addictive snack once you give it a try. Why’s that you ask? Let’s discuss:

  • It’s got that sweet & savory action going on.
  • With a hint of spiciness. Or more, or less, to taste!
  • Grapes! In salsa. That’s just cool.
  • Easy to prepare.
  • It gets better and better as it sits.
  • It’s fruit, so you know, you can totally eat the whole bowl.

No judging here.

    Oh yes this totally has my name all over it! I would just sit there and eat the whole lot then when Michael tried to call me a pig I would remind him its all fruit so its healthy 😀 Then he would remind me of all the chips I had eaten with it…..!

    Ashley, this is a winner! Grapes are one of the “betcha can’t eat just one” foods for me. I LOVE GRAPES! And they pair so well with savoury flavours because they’re so sweet. Making a salsa is so smart. Go friend Meg!

    I will eat anything with the word “salsa” in it, because that means it’s going to be good! I love the sweet and spicy thing, and with grapes? What a great idea! Pot luckin’ is sure fun. :)

    Holy salsa! Love grapes and this grape salsa from Meg is such a great idea! I am a sucker for sweet, savory and spicy so I would have no problem eating an entire bowl of this by myself. Love that it’s easy to make and healthy! =)

    • Ashley says

      Exactly – so you don’t feel so bad when you eat most of the bowl by yourself … not that I know about that or anything :)

  5. says

    Oh my gosh this is the best idea! I’ve never even heard of a grape salsa, but it sounds perfect! And I just bought a ton of grapes – they were on sale for 89 cents a pound so I kinda went nuts! Totally trying this out :)

  6. says

    Grapes and cilantro sounds like such a fresh tasting combination. I love fresh salsas and especially salsas that have fruit. Pinned!

  7. says

    I’ll be at your house shortly. There’s no way I’m turning down that invitation for snacking on your salsa! 😉
    I’ve never seen anything like this, but I don’t need any convincing! I love salsa anyway so adding fruit to it is just genius. And with the whole sweet and salty thing? Count. me. in.
