Which fruit are you enjoying most right now?  I’m really loving these green  Muscato Grapes from Melissa’s Produce!!

They’re plump, a good amount of juicy, not terribly sweet or sour, a perfect cooling snack for this warm #LosAngeles weather, and as Goldilocks would say, these are “just right!”. If you see them at the market, make sure to pick some up! You’re gonna love ’em!

Bracelets are from The Veggie Republic. For every bracelet sold, The Veggie Republic donates 5lbs of fresh produce to families in need! #FarmToArm

Grape Snakes

Servings:  3-4

Time:  15 minutes

Diet: V, GF, GFV, DF, SF, SRF, R

Ingredients

1-2 bunches organic black grapes

1 Tbsp cashew cream

1 carrot

2 goji berries

 

Directions

1. Wash the grapes very well and dry them.

2. Make the snake tongue. Peel the carrot and chop the ends off. Cut them into long rectangular slices. Cut a triangle out of the end of each slice to make a snake tongue. Cut a slit at the crown of 4 (or however many snakes you plan to make) grapes, then place the rectangular side of the carrot tongue into the slit. Place them right the edge of your serving plates, with the tongues faces out.

3. Make the snake eyes. Slice the goji berries to make evil red snake eyes. Using a toothpick, place a little cashew cream (which will be used as glue) where the goji eyes should go. Place the goji berries onto the cashew cream to stick.

4. Behind the snake heads, place grapes down onto the plate, with a little cashew cream (to stick to the plate, optional) at their base. Place onto the serving plate, artfully, curvy, and snake-like in pattern, and voila! You have your grape snakes!
