Grape Toss

Grape TossRecipe adapted from Susan’s Book, Boomer Be Well! Rebel Against Aging through Food, Nutrition and Lifestyle.

This recipe is refreshing, tart, creamy, crunchy, tangy and of course, nutritious. The grapes provide beautiful color and flavor, the blue cheese adds a creamy taste, the walnuts add crunch, the basil adds depth and the vinegar balances it all out with some tang.
Accompany this at a picnic, or with some beef, chicken, fish or tofu, or you can serve as a dessert or snack.

½ cup crumbled blue cheese
2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar*
¼ cup fresh chopped basil
