Tip for Making Light-Healthy Apple Broccoli Grape Salad
To keep broccoli salad fresh, reserve dressing on the side and pour over bowl (or plated portions) and toss just before serving.
Melissa’s Tricolor Muscato Grapes:
Muscato Grapes vary in color from green to red to black and are hybrids of some very special seedless grape varieties. They make a perfect summer snack with their crisp texture and mouth-watering, juicy interior. Muscato Grapes are much sweeter than the average grape, measuring at a brix (sweetness) level of at least 22 compared to the average grape brix of about 16.
Toss Muscato Grapes into a summer fruit salad, add to your favorite sauce, or eat right out of hand. These delectable summer treats are a great addition to any dessert.
Melissa’s Muscato Grapes vary in color from red to green to black.
They may be stored for up to two weeks wrapped in a paper towel in a plastic bag in the refrigerator.
What’s good to eat with this Apple Broccoli Grape Salad?
Honestly, it’s delicious all by itself! It’s light and refreshing, and the perfect meal for any lunch or dinner!
Can you freeze this Apple Broccoli Grape Salad?
It may sound tempting, but I wouldn’t do it. When you freeze it, it can change the texture of the veggies and the dressing. When it thaws, it may not taste as smooth!
