Nutritionist, author and television host Ellie Krieger has a new video (http://tinyurl.com/qdn8jz9) of comfort food tips and recipes using California grapes.
The video on the Fresno-based California Table Grape Commission website highlights uses that include grape rosemary foccacia; a butternut squash, rosemary and grape bake; and a Waldorf salad.
Krieger’s Waldorf salad includes celery, Greek yogurt and grapes. The mix of ingredients drops the calorie count from a typical 430 to 150, according to a news release.
The butternut squash casserole combines the fruit and vegetable with Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs sprinkled on top.
Her dessert tip is to include grapes in a port wine sauce.
