I've been making this recipe for a few years and it's always a big hit. I am often requested to make it when we go to friends' homes or to family gatherings. Not only is it delicious, it is easy to make, has a nice crunchy texture and a beautiful colorful presentation. Tip: make sure the red seedless grapes are firm and sweet. I prefer them to be small in size. If the grapes are large, I cut them in half, but make sure they are sweet. This recipe is a keeper.
