Salads are one of the best ways to showcase grapes. No matter what sort you toss up, grapes can help meld flavors and bring out the best in all the ingredients. In chicken, turkey and seafood salads, grapes add a contrasting texture, pretty colour, and a welcome, subtle sweetness that's unexpected. This tuna salad recipe is a favorite.
