Grapes seem to fall by the wayside when compared with paleo staple fruits like bananas, pineapple, citrus, and berries. But grapes are awesome from the lunchbox to the salad or smoothie, so try some of these paleo grape recipes!
1. Rosemary and Garlic Chicken With Roasted Red Grapes
Never roasted grapes before? You have to try it! In this recipe, the grapes get extra sweet and delicious and act as the perfect complement to juicy chicken, garlic, ghee, rosemary, black pepper, olive oil, and savory bone broth. This is a nutritious meal the whole family will love.
2. Baked Chicken With Tomato Mustard Cream Sauce, Grapes, and More
This amazing one-pot full dinner for the whole family has everything you want in a hearty, nourishing meal. It features diced chicken breast, white onion, garlic, carrots, white grapes, tomato paste, Dijon mustard, coconut cream, thyme, and bay leaf and it’s done in 40 minute!
3. Roasted Grape and Radicchio Salad
With pickled fennel and walnuts, this salad has a myriad of different textures and flavors all in our bite. Pickle the fennel yourself (use coconut sugar) and make a delicious dressing with honey and Dijon mustard. Just leave out the gorgonzola to make it paleo.
4. Green Over Green With Green on Top Slad
This is a sweet and savory salad that’s easy to make with just a handful of ingredients. You’ll need Swiss chard, grapes, kiwi, avocado, olive oil, whole grain mustard, sage leaves, and garlic—the garlicky dressing is the best part of this salad!
5. Purple Grape and Rosemary Sorbet
This creamy sorbet is made with grape juice and rosemary, and it’s sweetened with maple syrup. You can add a bit of alcohol (just 2 tablespoons) to help keep it soft in the freezer, so choose wisely to flavor it! The fun part is the maple-rosemary syrup. Yum!
6. Pan Seared Salmon With Red Seedless Grapes
I love this simple salmon recipe with red seedless grapes, red onion, red grape tomatoes, multi colored peppers, mushrooms, and olive oil. It’s cooked in cast iron and takes only about 20 minutes from preparation to table, so it’s an easy meal for a weeknight.
7. Creamy Frozen Grape and Vanilla Coconut Smoothie
Frozen grapes are a great summer snack, but if you’ve stuck more in the freezer than you need for snacking, try making this smoothie with coconut yogurt, ice, almond or coconut milk, frozen grapes, vanilla, sea salt, natural grape jam, and a frozen banana.
8. Curried Chicken Salad
Made without mayonnaise, this flavorful chicken salad has avocado, apple cider vinegar, Dijon mustard, curry powder, maple syrup, black pepper, grapes, red onion, cashews, and chicken salad. It’s great enjoyed on its own or stuffed in a large lettuce or collard leaf.
9. Grilled Chicken Arugula Salad
With fresh arugula, seedless grapes, red onion, walnuts, and a honey balsamic vinaigrette dressing, this easy salad has all the flavors and textures you could ask for. Sweet grapes complement spicy red onion, while the tart and smooth dressing coats everything. Yum.
10. Cauliflower Steaks With Rosemary Roasted Grape Chutney
This chutney is made with caramelized roasted grapes, olive oil, fresh rosemary, shallots, and garlic. The sweet and savory flavors could not be a better combination, and they make the perfect condiment for garlicky, sea-salted roasted cauliflower steaks.
11. Romanesco Risotto With Roasted Grapes, Seared Scallops, and Walnuts
Romanesco is a fun twist on the typical cauliflower rice, and this creamy risotto dish also includes spinach, chicken broth, butter, shallots, garlic, delicious seared scallops, toasted walnuts, and red seedless grapes. This is a fancy meal that will definitely bring your guests back.
12. Chicken and Grape Salad
Made with creamy homemade mayonnaise, spicy and crunchy red onion, sweet grapes, and refreshing celery, this easy salad is great to pack in your lunch for work or bring to a family picnic. And it’s healthy, too, with chopped chicken and shredded kale.
13. Roasted Chicken With Grapes and Shallots
This recipe has only 6 ingredients and it’s a one dish dinner in which the ingredients all work together to meld their flavors. The mixed grapes absorb the fats from the chicken (which roasts on top of them) while chopped fresh thyme flavors everything and the grapes start to caramelize.
14. Green Tea Grape Smoothie
With fresh peaches and stevia along with green grapes, this smoothie is plenty sweet and has a lovely bright color. Using green tea as the base infuses the tea with a unique flavor and adds lots of healthy antioxidants. This is a refreshing drink for a summer day.
15. Concord Grape Sorbet With Rosemary and Black Pepper
While the last sorbet recipe was made with grape juice, this one uses fresh or frozen Concord grapes infused with rosemary and peppercorn, and modestly sweetened with a bit of honey. It’s churned in an ice cream maker and the pepper adds such an unusual flavor!
16. Coronation Grape Chia Jam
This chia jam is easy to make without sugar or gelatin because the chia seeds thicken it right up. You’ll need coronation grapes, chia seeds as mentioned, and a touch of stevia if you feel like it needs a bit more sweetening. Thin with water if you need to.
17. Grape Italian Ice
Italian ice is a lot simpler to make than sorbet, and kids and adults alike will enjoy this one with lemon juice and galangal root powder. You don’t need an ice cream maker or fancy machinery, just a dish, a blender, a freezer, and a fork for scraping!
18. Grilled Cornish Game Hens With Grape Verjus Sauce
This fall-inspired meal is easier to make than in looks, but it’s fancy enough to serve to visiting friends and family who you’re looking to impress with your mad kitchen skills. You’ll need fresh herbs, black pepper, Cornish hens, garlic, grapes, verjus, and olive oil.
19. Broccoli Bacon Salad
If you want sweet, savory, meaty, spicy, and crunchy all in the same bite, you want this amazing salad. It’s nutritious with broccoli and red onion, sweet with juicy grapes, and just fantastic with crumbled bacon. White balsamic vinegar and maple syrup give it a sophisticated flavor.
20. Chicken Waldorf Salad
Waldorf salad is a picnic classic, but it’s traditionally made with soybean oil mayonnaise and other process ingredients and honestly, I’ve never been a fan. This version, though, is totally delicious with homemade mayo, apples, grapes, celery, walnuts, olive oil, and chicken.
21. Balsamic Brussels Sprouts and Red Grapes
These sprouts are sweet and earthy with maple syrup, balsamic vinegar, red grapes, walnuts, garlic, fresh thyme, olive oil, sea salt, and freshly ground black pepper. This is the kind of dish that you mean to serve the whole table but end up eating half of it yourself standing over it at the kitchen counter.
22. Paleo Chicken Apple Cranberry Pecan Salad
This salad screams “autumn” with cranberries throughout the sweet and savory flavors. Shallot and red onion add a hint of oniony spice while celery and apples add the crunch. The mayonnaise dressing is 100% homemade and sweetened with raw honey.
23. Concord Grape Sorbet
This sorbet is a little different, with a whipped egg white folded into the sorbet for a creamy, fluffy texture without dairy or dairy substitutes. It’s sweetened with just a bit of honey or maple syrup and a pine of fine grain sea salt brings out the natural flavors.
