Pour dressing onto salad just before serving and only on the salad you are about to eat otherwise if kept it will go soggy.

BONUS! grape chutney- I had some red Australian seedless grapes left in my crisper and decided to try making a chutney.

 grape jam

In an oven pan place grapes with a little about 1 tablespoon worth olive oil, 1/2 tsp salt, pepper, and sugar. Place into a preheated 180 degree oven cook til they burst and juices are running. 

De-glaze the pan while still warm with 1 tablespoon vinegar, Balsamic is nice.  Allow to cook and can place in fridge for a few days , ensure covered with oil if not using straight away.

deglaze

Add the chutney to your favorite meat dish, it went as a lovely accompaniment to my chicken dish above.

yummy chicken

Enjoy :)
