Grape… salsa? Yes … we loved it!

Who makes grape salsa?

Grape SalsaI have to admit, it was something I had never thought of before, making salsa out of grapes. But the grapes seem plentiful this year, and when I saw the recipe I figured it would be perfect recipes for a mom and a six year old. We found the original recipe for our own grape salsa, Grape-ful Salsa in The Ultimate Allergy-Free Snack Cookbook, and we modified because my daughter felt like the cilantro was overwhelming. (I have to admit I’m not the biggest cilantro fan either).

They used red grapes as well, and we had bright purple grapes, and who here doesn’t think that would make for an amazing colored grape salsa? Right?  Like I said, I had actually never even thought before this book to actually even make Grape Salsa.

Here’s The Grape Salsa Recipe:

One thing I loved was that we could have made our own brown rice tortilla chips, which we’ve done before. But they make such yummy brown rice crackers these days that you don’t have to. You know you could also use the round crackers that kids love with this – and they’d probably inhale it

Ingredients for Grape Salsa:

  • 1 cup of purple seedless grapes
  • 2 celery stalks diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, diced
  • 4 roma tomatoes, cut coarsely
  • 1 tbsp of freshly cut cliantro
  •  1 teaspoon of Himalayan Sea Salt
  • 1 tsp chili paste
  • 1 freshly squeezed lime
  • 6 drops of  Lime Essential Oil

Directions:

1. Cut the grapes in half and place them in a mixing bowl.

2. Add the remaining ingredients and place in the fridge for 30 minutes

3. Mix (we don’t want too chunky of salsa because my daughter still sometimes has texture issues) on the lowest setting on your vitamix.

4. Serve chilled. You can keep this in the fridge for up to 5 days covered for freshness.

We loved it and I am pretty sure your kids will as well. Remember that grapes are very low on the Glycemic Index, which means your blood sugar won’t go through the roof. Also grape phytonutrients are now believed to play a role in longevity… so we could also call this the “anti-aging” salsa. But your kids may not be quite as interested in making grape salsa if you tell them that, so it’s our secret.
