  • 1 cup grapes, sliced lengthwise

  • 1/2 cup toasted walnut halves


  1. In a small bowl, whisk olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic and dijon mustard together until smooth and well combined.

Recipe Notes

This salad is best enjoyed right after it is made. If you are bringing it to a party, I recommend waiting to add in the dressing, nuts and feta until right before you serve it.
