Grape Expectations: Our Favorite Recipes with Grapes

The typical grocery store grape section has two kinds: seedless red and seedless green. But if you've taken a look at the grape section lately, you've probably noticed a quickly expanding selection. Thanks to creative marketing campaigns (and hopefully more demand from American consumers), grape varieties are expanding, and you can pick up more than just the fruit salad seedless variety. For example, we recently tried Cotton Candy Grapes. We've also noticed fun Witch Fingers quite a bit, too.

Grapes make for great snacks, but they make an even greater addition to many dinners, breakfasts, and desserts. I've rounded up five of my favorite recipes with grapes so you can enjoy these jewel-toned orbs in so many more delicious ways.

Braised Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic and Grapes: The tangy-sweet combo of balsamic and grapes pairs beautifully with the earthy sprouts.

Roasted Carrot, Chicken, and Grape Quinoa Bowl: Caramelized carrots and fresh, juicy grapes lend a welcome sweetness to this quinoa.

Fatty fish, like salmon: Plank-Grilled Salmon with Grape Relish

Slow-Roasted Grape and Yogurt Parfaits: It's absolutely worth the time to cook grapes for three hours. Low and slow heat concentrates the grape-y sweetness and turns fruit buttery-soft with almost no effort.
