2. Spicy Kale with Fried Grapes

spicy_kale_friedgrapes_recipe_2013-07-25Kale and grapes? You bet! Balsamic vinegar is the secret ingredient, serving as a bridge between tender lacinato (also known as “dinosaur”) kale and sweet red grapes. Red onions add additional flavor, red pepper flakes provide heat, and everything is balanced by salt, pepper, and olive oil.

First, the grapes and onions are caramelized in the pan; next, add the kale and let it barely wilt. This is a fantastic side dish that uses an unexpected combination of flavors. Learn how to make this dish here.

3. Roast Chicken with Grapes and Tarragon

roastchickenwithgrapes_recipe_2013-07-25Grapes really are surprisingly versatile. This recipe combines them with a whole chicken, roasted to crisp perfection. The grapes are featured in a stuffing, combined with fresh tarragon and shallots, which is first cooked inside of the chicken.


Next, the stuffing is removed from the chicken and simmered with wine, which is then used as a sauce for the carved chicken. Not an everyday meal for sure, but perfect when you want to pull out all the stops. Find the full method and ingredients list here.
