Grape season is a long one and it will be coming to a close in January.  Head to your produce department and grab what is left of Grapes from California for the holidays.   Great as appetizers, like this grape guacamole, or light desserts to keep you guilt-free during during holiday parties, grapes are versatile and can be incorporated in just about any dish.   They also make the perfect garnish and finishing touch on your festive meals and celebration table.

Remember that during this festive season, it’s so easy to fall into those sweet temptations on the dessert table, office potlucks and continuous get togethers.  By having California Grapes at the table, it’s an easy and effective way to curve your appetite and nourish you while celebrating with your family. Wishing you a joyous holiday full of warmth, love and delicious grapes!
