I have had company since last week! Our friends Kathy and Phyllis drove up from Florida and we had such a fun filled time! I always have good intentions of blogging each day, but it is good when life is just too full! When I first moved to Tennessee, a new acquaintance, Edna Lee, gave me this grape salad recipe. She told me that it sounds like a “crazy” mix of ingredients but whenever she makes it everyone raves about it. I saw Edna Lee and her husband Andy at the Tennessee Walking Horse Celebration last Friday night. I let her know we are still serving her wonderful grape salad!We decided to make it to include for a luncheon when our Florida friends arrived.
It is a crazy mix of ingredients but when it was all said and done, my husband was licking the last of it from the dish — that is usually a good sign it is a keeper recipe!
Ah! One more thing … I heard from my niece Alesa that she made the Chicken Carbonara recipe for her new husband Ty. Click HERE for that sweet picture!

* Grapes can be sliced in half or left whole. If you slice them in half, the juice weeps slightly, but I find this okay. If you have small grapes you can leave them whole.
The domestication of purple grapes originated in Central Asia (Ancient Persia).Yeast, one of the earliest domesticated microorganisms, occurs naturally on the skins of grapes, leading to the innovation of alcoholic drinks such as wine. First traces of red wine is seen in ancient Persia in Armenia. Shiraz red wine is known After Shiraz a city in Persia were the grape was used. Ancient Egyptianhieroglyphics record the cultivation of purple grapes, and history attests to the ancient Greeks, Phoenicians and Romans growing purple grapes for both eating and wine production. Later, the growing of grapes spread to Europe, North Africa, and eventually North America.
Native purple grapes belonging to the Vitis genus proliferated in the wild across North America, and were a part of the diet of many North American Native Americans, but were considered by European colonists to be unsuitable for wine. The first Old WorldVitis vinifera purple grapes were cultivated in California.
